Let me tell you first that i really hate proxy settings and stuff! It is seriously a big headache! But it is necessary in all the times, customarily it will be very handy at schools and workplaces! So lets see how to set the proxy for git on unix machine [Mac].
Step1:Open your terminal.
Step2: Type the command git config –global http.proxy [your proxy website or the ip address]
For example: git config –global http.proxy http://10.11.32.9:8888
Step3: You can now check what are the settings configured in the gitconfig by executing the following command
Zerocools-MacBook:~ pamusriharsha$ git config –list
For example: It would be something as this
That’s it here we go. Your proxy settings for your git is successfully completed!😀
