How to do a git clone through a NTLM proxy

I've already set up CTNLM - - and have
already used it with Ruby gems yesterday, so I definitely know it's
working. We now have to configure GIT so it uses this proxy (running
on localhost:3128 by default)

>git config --global http.proxy localhost:3128

I've been looking at how to use workflows in Ruby on Rails recently,
and came across this project:

And the install instructions are here:

But looks like the GIT protocol can't be used through our proxy,
because if we try it we get this:

>git clone git://
Cloning into ruote...
fatal: Unable to look up (port 9418) (No such host is known. )

So replace git:// with http:// and see if we can do a git clone

>git clone
Cloning into ruote...

Yay, it works!!
