SSH port is blocked at many company firewalls – for no good technical reasons of course, but probably driven by security policies, and that means one cannot use github without either a weird proxy hack or via HTTPS, which github now supports.

For cloning an existing repro – just use the https path.

# public repro
git clone https://github.com/username/repro.git
# private repro - will prompt for password 
git clone https://username@github.com/username/repro.git


If you are creating a new repro, then you want to add the http path as the origin server.

# will prompt password upon push 
git remote add origin https://username@github.com/username/repro.git
