Dear all,

I am using the latest version (helios) of eclipse for C++ development. I have the same versions on a Windows XP 32Bit system and a 64 Bit OpenSuse Linux.

I do not have direct access to internet, I have to use a proxy with authentication. The Windows XP system has no trouble with that configuration and I can access the update sites without any problem. But the Linux version has made some trouble.

I tried different configurations, started with the same settings as in the Windows case. But I can not access the internet because the authentication is not working. I tried the manual, native an direct settings. For the direct setting I get as expected always a timeout. But for the other cases I always get the message "HTTP Proxy Authentication Required".
Quote:

HTTP Proxy Authentication Required: http://download.eclipse.org/releases/helios/content.xml
org.eclipse.ecf.filetransfer.BrowseFileTransferException: Proxy auth required



This seems as the authentication was not been send to the proxy, although it had been configured.

After some research with google i added following lines to my eclipse.ini:
Quote:

-Dorg.eclipse.ecf.provider.filetransfer.excludeContributors= org.eclipse.ecf.provider.filetransfer.httpclient
-Dhttp.proxyPort=80
-Dhttp.proxyHost=#Proxyname#
-Dhttp.proxyUser=#username#
-Dhttp.proxyPassword=#password#
-Dhttp.nonProxyHosts=localhost|127.0.0.1



But even this did not work, I got now new entries in the error log:
Quote:

System property http.proxyHost has been set to #Proxyname# by an external source. This value will be overwritten using the values from the preferences
System property http.proxyPort has been set to 80 by an external source. This value will be overwritten using the values from the preferences
System property http.proxyUser has been set to #username# by an external source. This value will be overwritten using the values from the preferences
System property http.proxyPassword has been set to #Password# by an external source. This value will be overwritten using the values from the preferences



I do not have any idea how to proceed, perhaps anybody had the same problem and solved it. Thank you in advance!

Best regards
Stefan

P.S.: My Eclipse environment:

Dear all,

the corresponding proxy is a ntml proxy. I do not know why it does not work with linux, but I found a workaround. Using the CNTLM proxy as some kind of tunnel it works.

Best regards
Stefan

P.S.: There is also a bug report concerning this issue https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=318315
