I find this a little hard to believe. I thought it must be finger trouble or possibly some setup on my machine, so I tried on another Ubuntu (Karmic) machine box, same behavior.|
Simple example, install Eclipse 3.6 goto help -> help contents and I get an error from my proxy (not on localhost):
While trying to retrieve the URL: http://127.0.0.1:43166/help/index.jsp
Turns out it is due to my desktop settings in Ubuntu I set System->preferences->Network Proxy, point at a proxy BUT have Ignored hosts set to localhost 127.0.0/8 *.local *.home
Despite this it seem to keep trying to get this page via the proxy.
If I go to : eclipse->preferences->general->networksettings I see I have NATIVE selected. I can try any/all combinations and nothing is affected.
I can however turn off 'network proxy' in Ubuntu ... THEN and only then do any of the settings inside Eclipse have an effect.
To reproduce this is very simple. Assuming you Don't need a proxy ... in ubuntu set the proxy to 18.104.22.168 and the the ignored hosts set as-is (the list above in fact) then do help -> help contents ...it will hang and then timeout. I tested this on a 2nd machine which did not use proxies.
BTW. I've since found a way to get this one page to work ... add 127.0.0.1 (ie single machine to exclude list , not a class C network) and it now excludes it .
It looks as if the Ubuntu settings are being used in preference to any other other and the syntax is not being parsed correctly.
