Git Question

could not resolve host github.com error while cloning remote repository in git

What I did: I have created a remote repository on Github and I am trying to clone the remote repository on my local machine. While cloning I am providing the clone URL & target folder.

But every time I try to clone, I am getting this error:

Error: "fatal: unable to access 'https://github.com/hyperion057/spring-repo.git/': Could not resolve host: github.com"

What do I need to do to connect to GitHub ?

do i need to configure proxy settings? because my office has got proxy servers.

Yes, you can do so by setting HTTP_PROXY, and HTTPS_PROXY environment variables.

See "Syncing with github":

set HTTPS_PROXY=http://<login_internet>:<password_internet>@aproxy:aport
set HTTP_PROXY=http://<login_internet>:<password_internet>@aproxy:aport
set NO_PROXY=localhost,my.company

Note the NO_PROXY, to allow to access internal site to your company

You also can register that in your git config:

git config --global http.proxy http://<login_internet>:<password_internet>@aproxy:aport
