Hi Paul,

Once I got the correct ssh keys into github and configured .gitconfig on the server behind the firewall, it never prompts for a password. I added this to our .gitconfig.

        proxy =
        proxy =

and ran this:

ssh-keygen -t rsa

to generate a public key on the machine behind the firewall, and put that public key (~/.ssh/ into github. Note that I generated the rsa key with no passphrase (hit return twice, don't type a passphrase into ssh-keygen).
