How to configure proxy support for Subversion repositories
Some environments may require authenticating with an outbound proxy before being able to connect to the machine hosting the subversion repository.
SVNKit doesn't use the JVM proxy settings, but simply delegates to the configuration used by the native subversion client.
Add the follow to
~/.subversion/servers (for Unix/Linux) or
%APPDATA%\Subversion\servers for Windows based machines:
http-proxy-host = proxy.example.com http-proxy-port = 8080 http-proxy-username = myuserid http-proxy-password = mypassword
Save the file then test the connection using the jsvn executable that ships with Fisheye:
<FishEye installation directory>/lib/svn/jsvn info http://your.subversion.server.com/path/to/repo
If that is successful, Fisheye should now be able to connect to the subversion repository.
