How to use Eclipse 3.5 behind a proxy with authentication


In my actual project i have to work in the employers office behind a firewall/proxy. The proxy requires a authentication so i have the following proxy-settings:

eclipse_proxy_auth

Since our development-team switch to eclipse 3.5. these settings don’t work anymore. We found out that the default http-client in eclipse 3.5. doesn’t support our proxy autentication. The solution was to exclude the „new“ eclipse efc http-client via eclipse.ini:

-Dorg.eclipse.ecf.provider.filetransfer.excludeContributors=org.eclipse.ecf.provider.filetransfer.httpclient
-Dhttp.proxyPort=8080
-Dhttp.proxyHost=proxyf....
-Dhttp.nonProxyHosts=localhost|127.0.0.1
