Mine tells me this:

$ ssh -p 443 github.com
The authenticity of host '[ssh.github.com]:443 (<no hostip for proxy 
command>)' can't be established.
RSA key fingerprint is 16:27:ac:a5:76:28:2d:36:63:1b:56:4d:eb:df:a6:48.
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes
Warning: Permanently added '[ssh.github.com]:443' (RSA) to the list of 
known hosts.
Permission denied (publickey).

So it looks like it does work but does not authenticate.  I hope I don
t have to setup a login with github.
