I set a proxy for my git but I can not ping github.com by using it in my Git Bash. (error: time out)

In the meantime, I can approach github.com by chrome which is also using the same proxy.

Pinging through a proxy doesn't make a whole lot of sense, but if that's really what you want to do, you could look at this SO question: stackoverflow.com/questions/147558/… . It would help if you explain why you want to ping github.com ... what are you trying to achieve? –  andypaxo Jul 5 '12 at 17:33

ping don't (and can't) use a proxy.
