So ever had this issue? I’ll explain:
Say you are using Eclipse and you are trying to connect to a SVN Repository behind a proxy and for some really strange reason, it just won’t connect. You have changed the proxy settings on the Eclipse Preferences, but nothing helps.
Guess what? The SVN plugin/extension in Eclipse bypasses your proxy settings. In order to get this to work you need to search for a servers file that is located on the C:\Users\YourUser\AppData\Roaming\Subversion directory. Once you edit this file, look up for the http-proxy-host and http-proxy-port keywords under the [Global] section and set it with your proxy settings.
Once that is done, save the file, restart your Eclipse and bam! Fixed!
