In Eclipse Callisto (3.2) proxy settings
were integrated into general eclipse network preferences in Europa (3.3):
As you see it solves many problems: now you can use update manager even if you have ssl authentication server and you do not need to enter your security credentials every time...
But please imagine you have much more complicated situation: your product on internal update site and you have proxy server that isolates your company network from internet and you rely on eclipse community projects...
Now it is pain!
In this situation eclipse should have set:
- Proxy Settings for your proxy server
- Internal update site in No Proxy for.
You can achieve your goal adding internal update server host name, server http address (but without http:// and IP address...). It means there are 3 entries per one server.
Then it will work.
