It needs an HTTP/S-capable cURL (or similar). I've submitted an RFE to get
this fixed but I couldn't get to the RFE site this morning so I don't have
a link for people to vote :-(

Work around is to use the git URL to access remote repos instead of https.

We seem to have acquired a problem with Git on the IBMi in that we can no
longer clone a repo (using http or https). It is hard to know when this
happened because we don’t very often clone a repo on an IBMi (just


git clone --progress -v http://<userid>:<password>@
Cloning into '/tmp/rns_htdocs'...
fatal: Unable to find remote helper for 'http'

Anyone else seen this?
