Thanks Joao (and everyone else for their answers),

I just now sent a request for a port 9418 firewall exception to the IT department here.

However, I read that modern git should work fine over http so I suspect that this "warning: remote HEAD refers to nonexistent ref, unable to checkout" might be a clue concerning what might be wrong (with the http based access).

Note that there can be two different ways to start the git clone.

git clone git://git.rtems.org/rtems.git rtems

git clone http://git.rtems.org/rtems.git rtems

I had the same problem in my corporate computer, I was unable to access GIT, and I tried many ways to solve the issue. In fact, it was not a proxy issue, but the corporate firewall used to block the GIT port. After some fights with the IT Team, the problem was solved.

The port is 9418. Check this out...
