Not sure if this is the appropiate forum.
I am not new to eclipse and would not have problems installing eclipse on my personal computer:
But I am responsible for eclipse releases in my department in the public service of a city and it would be neccessary first to mirror eclipse, the release to serve, as a whole locally inside our DMZ. Of course all plugins we need as well.
I learnt something about mirroring artifacts and P2, but I dont know how to mirror the newest release and direct the installer to the local release.
About such a topic, the www.eclipse.org is quite silent.

I would really appreciate if somebody could help me.

I assume you found this link already:

https://wiki.eclipse.org/Equinox_p2_Repository_Mirroring

Question's like yours have been asked on the Oomph forum as well:

https://www.eclipse.org/forums/eclipse.oomph

It's not trivial to mirror the needed sites and to get the installer working with those mirrors. One problem is that the IUs (installable units) in a site sometimes can and do have "touch point" instructions that reference other update sites and your mirrored site will still have such references because the mirror applicaton has no support for transforming that information during mirroring.

Also, the installer accesses http://www.eclipse.org/setups/setups.zip for the latest version of the "product catalog" so if you really are behind a restrictive firewall, you'll have trouble accessing that as well.

Oomph's installer does support general URI redirections so it is relatively trivial to redirect URLs from one location to another via JVM system properties. And you can host your own "index" with your own "product" definitions:

https://wiki.eclipse.org/Eclipse_Oomph_Authoring#Hosting_your_own_index_.2F_catalogs

So you could either change the product catalog to use your mirrors or add redirections to the eclipse-inst.ini (which you'd need to modify anyway if you need to redirect the index).

Thank you very much. I am still working on it. I feared that there would be such problems.
Greetings Bernd
