Artifactory proxy/repository setup to Hub

Has anyone successfully setup an Artifactory remote proxy to the Hugging Face Hub (

I created a GitLFS proxy in our instance of Artifactory however, I keep getting the following message:

$ git clone https://<user>:<token>@sres.web.<co>.com/artifactory/api/lfs/huggingface-lfs-remote/tiiuae/falcon-7b
Cloning into 'falcon-7b'...
fatal: repository 'https://sres.web.<co>.com/artifactory/api/lfs/huggingface-lfs-remote/tiiuae/falcon-7b/' not found

If I clone directly from the Hub though it works (Company doesn’t allow downloading directly from the internet so this is not an option).
git clone

I setup an identical proxy in Artifactory using the Generic repo format and I have no problem using curl to download individual files from the hub.

> curl -H X-JFrog-Art-Api:$(cat ~/.api |grep prod |awk '{print $2}') https://sres.web.<co>.com/artifactory/huggingface/tiiuae/falcon-7b/resolve/main/tokenizer.json > downloads/tokenizer.json
