Unable to get pack file
I am building a custom pfsense image.
I want to clone the pfsense git repository using the following command,
#git clone http://gitweb.pfsense.org/pfsense/mainline.git pfSenseGITREPO/pfSenseGITREPO
but there is an error: unable to get pack file
cannot obtain the needed object
Someone told me to change the http protocol to git since http has got some issues for larger files.
And i chaged the command to the following:
#git clone git://gitweb.pfsense.org/pfsense/mainline.git pfSenseGITREPO/pfSenseGITREPO
but still there is error:
fatal:unable to connect a socket (Operation timed out)
please help me fix this.
