I am new to node modules and git. Should i have to do any configuration related to GIT in node modules?

**[Edit] : ** I am behind a corporate proxy. Should have to give any configuration related to that? I added proxy details in .npmrc file in
users/<username>/.npmrc
file. My path variable has the Git/bin location as well.

Answer

This question has an answer in an other thread. The issue occurred since I was behind corporate proxy. And @bnguyen82's answer helped me finally.

I just used the following command and the issue got resolved.

git config --global url."https://".insteadOf git://
