Git connects using ssh, so my guess is that you don't have ssh/git 
configured to tunnel through your proxy.  I've never needed to configure 
git to work through a proxy, but it looks like a little Googling will 
lead you to some good resources.  This page looks promising, for a start:

If you run into a dead end there, you might take a look at Google's repo 
script, and see if you can get it to connect via http, rather than ssh.
