exit code of #128 fatal: unable to connect to github.com

I follow the Quickstart guide from FoundationPress and it display this error

bower install && grunt build
bower foundation#*          not-cached git://github.com/zurb/bower-foundation.git#*
bower foundation#*             resolve git://github.com/zurb/bower-foundation.git#*
bower fontawesome#~4.3.0    not-cached git://github.com/FortAwesome/Font-Awesome.git#~4.3.0
bower fontawesome#~4.3.0       resolve git://github.com/FortAwesome/Font-Awesome.git#~4.3.0
bower fontawesome#~4.3.0       ECMDERR Failed to execute "git ls-remote --tags --heads git://github.com/FortAwesome/Font-Awesome.git", exit code of #128 fatal: unable to connect to github.com: github.com[0:]: errno=Connection timed out

I run this to solve this problem.

git config --global url."https://".insteadOf git://
