Update Manager port? [message #61689] Thu, 14 May 2009 03:23 Go to next message

I'm trying to connect to an update site from within a firewall using
Eclipse 3.4.1. I can browse to the site from within Eclipse's Browser
view but my network guy says he's seen no requests from my IP when
attempting access thru the Update Manager which returns 'No update site
found'. What am I missing? Does Update Manager work on another port or
over HTTPS or something? Can I use the General>Network Connections page
to specify a proxy somehow? What exactly would that look like? Is there
something specific I can ask the network guy for?

Also, we're probably going to upgrade to 3.5 when it's released, will
this mechanism be the same?

Thanks,
Craig

An update site is just a bunch of files sitting on a web server. So the
port is just 80 or whatever your webserver runs on. The update manager
uses regular HTTP mechanisms to access the site.

Are there any errors in your log when you try to access the site from
Update Manager?

Does it work if you put the contents of the update site in a local
folder and try to access it there?

Thanks Ben. I'll try again and check the log and try accessing the update
site locally. Good tips.

After discovering an Unknown Host Exception we determined the 3.4.1
Update Manager is not using the proxy settings set in the General >
Network Connections preference page. Is this a bug or by design? Will the
Update Manager in 3.5 negotiate through proxy servers?

I'm pretty sure p2 proxy support was in the 3.4.x streams but there may
have been bugs. Your best bet is to grab 3.5 RC1 and try it.
