There is another possibility that you might want to investigate: if
there is a SOCKS proxy server available at work, you can arrange to pass
git traffic through that.  You'll need a SOCKS client (e.g. dante or
tsocks works fine on Linux - I'm completely ignorant about Windows), and
a tiny amount of configuration to make your client point to the SOCKS
server. Then instead of

        git clone git://...
        git pull

you say

        socksify git clone git://...
        socksify git pull

(that's with dante) or

        tsocks git clone git://...
        tsocks git pull

(with tsocks) and you are done.

Also, it might be possible to use HTTP (presumably, you have an http
proxy at work to get through the firewall) instead of the GIT protocol
to do the pull, but I believe that depends on whether the repository has
been set up properly to allow that - I have not tried it in the org
case, but I was using it for the mainline Linux kernel before I had set
up the SOCKS proxy service: it was slower but it worked.
