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.


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.
