Some networks use proxy servers to provide Internet services to LAN clients. Clients behind
the proxy may therefore, only connect to the Internet via the proxy service. If you are not
sure whether your computer is required to use a proxy server to connect to the Internet or you
don't know the proxy parameters, please consult your network administrator.
You can open the
panel from menu .
The Connection settings Preferences Panel
Complete the dialog as follows:
- Direct connection - If
checked, the HTTP(S) connections go directly to the target host without going through a
- Use system settings - If
checked, the HTTP(S) connections go through the proxy server set in the operating system.
For example on Windows the proxy settings are the ones used by Internet Explorer.
- Manual proxy configuration -
If checked, the HTTP(S) connections go through the proxy server specified in the fields
Address and Port of the section
Web Proxy (HTTP / HTTPS). Also this section specifies the hosts to
which the connections must not go through a proxy server in the field No proxy
- Web Proxy authentication (HTTP /
HTTPS) - In this section you set the user and password necessary for
authentication with the proxy server. The user and password set here will be used both in
case of manual proxy configuration and in case of system settings selected above.
- SOCKS Proxy - In this
section you set host and port of a SOCKS proxy through which all the connections must pass.
If the Address field is empty the connections will use no SOCKS
- SSL authentication with client
certificate - If checked and the SVN server accessed through the HTTPS
protocol requires a digital certificate, the user is asked to specify a file path containing
the digital certificate in the PKCS format for accessing that server.
- Read Timeout (s) - The period in seconds after
which the application will consider a HTTP server is unreachable if it does not receive any
response to a request sent to that server.
The proxy settings are first looked up in the preferences. If there were
no previous preferences set then the settings are loaded from the servers
file located in the %HOME%\Application Data\Subversion folder on Windows
/ $HOME\.subversion folder on Linux and Mac OS X.
