What if you try to access http://github.com:443 from your web-browser
(which is supposed to be able to authenticate OK)?

The problem is that it seems like the authentication phase does happen,
and your request thus might be denied by the access policy of your
corporate HTTP proxy.

Even if you will access the URL OK in your browser, the proxy can deny
your request based on the request's content type, for instance.
It's hard to guess, so I'd ask the system administrators.
