I have a rather unusual problem with my proxy settings. They seem to work for installing plugins (Help -> Install new software) but when I try to access a git repository I get an authentication error.
I have configured my Eclipse as follows:
1) In eclipse.ini I added the VM arguments:
2) In Window->Preferences->Network connections
* Provider is "Manual"
* HTTP and HTTPS are set to the same values as eclipse.ini
* SOCKS is cleared (we don't have a SOCKS proxy)
Now, when I try to access remote update site to check for updates, or to install new plugins, everything works fine.
When I try to access a repository on github via HTTP I get a proxy authentication error:
Exception caught during execution of ls-remote command: http://github.com/git/git.git: 407 Proxy Authentication Required
The same happens if I try using HTTPS:
Exception caught during execution of ls-remote command: https://github.com/git/git.git: 407 Proxy Authentication Required
I've reviewed my username and password again and again, but they can't be wrong because install/update does not seem to have problems. Any ideas what else I could check?
P.S. Our corporate proxy is your usual NTLM abomination. I don't have any ".gitconfig" settings in my home (a Linux system).
