Git Clone throwing a fatal error

I am trying to clone a project using Bash & am getting this error:

fatal: unable to access 'https://github. ...': Failed to connect to 127.0.0.1 port 8087: Connection refused


It works just fine on my personal laptop. Is it maybe a proxy issue as I am using company laptop (network)?

Answer

So, what was happening is, there is a file in C:\Users\ADMIN\ called .gitconfig It was pointing to my local (127.0.0.1) rather than github.com.
