When I try to run github hosted regression tests with, access to times out even though it seems to be using the specified our proxy server.

# Running regressions in /scratch/modular-boost...
# Creating regression scripts at /scratch/modular-boost/tools_regression_src...
# Dowloading regression scripts from

What's interesting is that I'm able to clone from just fine, as you can see here.

-bash-4.1$ git clone

-bash-4.1$ git clone
