How to use Git with Psiphon VPN or Other VPNs

Post by unitedwebsoft »

When I try to push to my git repo while using the psiphon vpn desktop for Windows 10, an error message pops up.

Using npm functions is disabled entirely. As much as I've looked, I can't seem to discover the answer to this.

Hi United,
I hope so you're doing great and having fun, as I've seen some relevancy to that topic and want to answer you query may these helps you;

Git is a distributed version control system that allows users to collaborate on software development projects. While it is not designed to work with VPNs, you can use Git with a VPN like Psiphon VPN by configuring your Git client to use the VPN connection.

Here are the general steps to configure Git to work with a VPN:

1. Install the VPN software: You will need to install and configure your VPN software on your computer.

2. Connect to the VPN: Once the VPN software is installed, connect to the VPN network.

3. Set the Git proxy: You can configure Git to use the VPN connection as a proxy server. To do this, run the following command in your terminal or command prompt:

git config --global http.proxy <VPN_IP_address>:<VPN_port> ---- Code

4. Replace <VPN_IP_address> with the IP address of the VPN server and <VPN_port> with the port number of the VPN server.

Test the connection: To test your Git connection over the VPN, run the following command:

git clone<username>/<repository>.git ---- Code

Replace <username> with your GitHub username and <repository> with the name of the repository you want to clone.

If the clone is successful, your Git client is configured to work with the VPN connection.

Note that using a VPN with Git may slow down your connection speed, so it's important to evaluate whether a VPN is necessary for your particular use case. Additionally, be aware of any potential security risks associated with using a VPN and take appropriate precautions to protect your data.

Kind Regards,
Bruce Donald
