I would set up https as suggested in the above reference "Another
strategy is to attempt the checkout over SSL, which many proxies
allow". Usually proxies must be transparent with https because of the
end to end encryption done by the ssl layer. Effectively this means
that they can't proxy for https and so leave it alone.

I am guessing that an https connection would work for you. You would
have to set up https on your server to support this. If you are
trying to allow commits from the internet then this is a better way to
do it regardless.
