There is a chance there is a problem on our end, but as this is an 
external server (even to me), I wouldn't think this would be the case.

Possibly a firewall is in the way?  The git port is 9418.

There is a way to pull git content over http:// that is less efficient, 
though I'm not sure if that is enabled.  I'm checking on it.
