Resolving Port 222 error of github

I was having a problem with github for a while, which I resolved yesterday.
The problem was that git on my ubuntu was using port 22 to connect with github.com.
And my college's firewall had blocked that port perhaps.

 I did this to change that port from 22 to 443:


$ gedit ~/.ssh/config
Added the following to the config file
Host github.com
  Hostname ssh.github.com
  Port 443
 

problem solved, thanks to this
