If you cannot go through port 443, that may explain it. One way to
check the connection is to ssh directly to github.com (with user git).
It will fail (it is not support to work), but will tell you something

PTY allocation request failed on channel 0
Hi cournape! You've successfully authenticated, but GitHub does not

         Connection to github.com closed.

Yes, it may work for svn and not for git: the related network
requirements are not the same. In some cases, http is the only method
- on the draconian environment, I used http + push at the end of the
