Fair (and good) questions! :-)
8 Systems/12 Jails OS version 12.x | 13.x
git version 2.3x
The 8 systems involved here are all (static) IPv4 bound.

While as I test now. I'm finding there are no problems (as reported)
PRIOR: it didn't matter whether jail(8) or the host. The attempts
timed out after some 5 minutes with a report of:
error: RPC failed; HTTP 504 curl 22 The requested URL returned error: 504
fatal: error reading section header 'shallow-info'

That's the best I can offer ATM.

Thanks for asking. :-)
