Explanation:

TFS user was not able to connect to TFS through Eclipse plugin from linux box. TFS connection hangs forever. When I tried to debug, I found the user was not able connect to intranet\internet within Eclipse IDE.

Solution:

Enabled the proxy settings in the Eclipse IDE. Following are the steps

1. Open Eclipse

2. Go to "Windows" --> " Preferences" menu

3. Expand "general"

4. Select  "Network Connections"

5. Select "Active Provider" as manual

6. Select " HTTP " --> click "Edit"  --> Enter Host as "Your proxy server" and port as "Your proxy server port (usually 80)" --> click "ok" --> click "ok" --> click "apply"

7. Restart "Eclipse"

8. Try connecting to TFS Server.
