After a long time trying I think I’ve finally got my HTTPS_PROXY settings set correctly. I can now use NPM and GIT!
GIT: I have been trying to use GIT inside the corporate firewall for some time. Unfortunately it’s blocked by the proxy server.
NPM: The same problem affects NODE.JS … I can’t NPM anything because it’s blocked.
This has prevented me from doing any modern web development at work!
So what was the missing piece?..
I didn’t have the right URL format for my HTTPS_PROXY environment variable. I attempted
http://proxyservername:9090 without success. What I was missing was the username/password embedded in the URL:
I just installed GULP with a
$ npm install --global gulp (I’m soo excited).
With success with NPM I tried GIT. I finally got
git clone https://github.com/AllenMay/allenmay.github.io.git to work for me (YAY! More excitement).
