Ok tried the ealier versions of spfx and had no issues. Thought I would try RC0 with samples but struggling to clone locally, both at work on home ( no proxy) on my dev laptop. Any ideas

λ git clone https://github.com/SharePoint/sp-dev-fx-webparts.git

Cloning into 'sp-dev-fx-webparts'... fatal: unable to access 'https://github.com/SharePoint/sp-dev-fx-webparts.git/': Failed to connect to port 8080: Timed out

D:\Box Sync\yo λ ping

Pinging with 32 bytes of data: Request timed out.

    Everything works just fine for me. It's extremely rare situation if github is not available. Check your proxy\dns cache\internet. Feb 3 '17 at 10:09
  • Looks more like an internet connection/speed issue ? ISP block ? Works absolutely fine at my end. If you have any azure VM , try inside that. Check this image - i.stack.imgur.com/8zHxF.png Feb 3 '17 at 10:10
  • I have tried with and without a proxy at work. I would think DNS and or timeout settings if the simple ping worked. Also disabled AV temporarily . GIT on Visual Studio Online works fine. Yes I could try Azure. Feb 3 '17 at 10:17
  • Got a mate near London to ping the ip address with an app on his phone called ping .. no response. he pinged his router and got a response. I am thinking this is a UK thing going on ... maybe country blocking - early Brexit ;-) Feb 3 '17 at 10:57

After thinking about it - the answer was obvious - I hadn't twigged that I was staring at the proxy address . Then I remembered having to set the proxy in Git for VC code when last connected to the proxy. Hence, just needed to undo this.

git config --global --unset http.proxy
