I am trying to download a source code from assembla in mac machine. I had a open network before so i just used the

git clone  

in the terminal to download the source code. Now proxy has been set in the network. When i try to download the code ,it is not hitting the proxy (My network admin say). So is there a way i should set the proxy in the terminal to download the code.

I have web proxy server: and port:80 .

Please help to download the source code.
