Hi,

recently I had a question on how to use Gitools behind a proxy. I'm
posting here the answer because it might be of your interest.

Gitools is running on top of Java, so you need to configure Java to
use the proxy.

If you are using Windows or Mac follow this instructions:
http://www.java.com/en/download/help/proxy_setup.xml

Another possible workaround for Mac and Linux users is to add this two
lines with your proxy settings:

-Dhttp.proxyHost=your.proxy.com
-Dhttp.proxyPort=8888

into the files ./bin/gitools64.vmoptions
and ./bin/gitools.vmoptions

Best regards,

Jordi

I still can't access the data repository server at my workplace. :-( I tried with the browser settings and setting the proxy myself, but it doesn't help. Is there anything else that I could do? I know that it must be the proxy/firewall or whatever at the office, since it works find from home.

Hi Sarah

In order to make it a bit easier we have included the proxy settings into the Gitools settings in the settings menu (Help -> Gitools settings)

It will be officially released with the next version. Nevertheless it is already available in the development version at http://bg.upf.edu/gitools-snapshots. If you would like to try if the new settigns works for you it would be excellent feedback for us. For your everyday work please keep using the official release, as the development version may be buggy.

Best,
Michael

Hey Michael,

the development version looks really nice with the extra settings and the other little changes.
I entered my usual proxy information in the settings and then clicked the "try again" link on the Welcome tab, but it didn't work. The only thing that changed is that, after re-starting Gitools, the Welcome tab stays completely blank instead of showing the connection error and the other links.

Best,
Sarah

Hi Sarah

Could it be that you need some additional settings than just the host and the port information such as user authentication?

Other than that, a common mistake may be putting a http:// in front of the host url, which is not necessary in this case. I rechecked with our proxy and it seems to work, but we do not need user authentication.

Best,

Hey Michael,

I don't know... I have a desktop application, RescueTime, where I just enter the proxy server address (without the http:// of course) and the port and it works, but that's the only other example I have.

Best,
Sarah
