I am using eclipse helios and am trying to connect to the marketplace for installing plugins (seems to be the norm these days, especially for svn & maven plugins).
However, at my workplace clicking Eclipse marketplace... button gives the following error:
cannot resolve host marketplace.eclipse.org
I checked from browser, and this website is showing. Also, the proxy settings of eclipse are the same as system settings.
BTW, at my home, this error isn't happening.
Any ideas as to what may have gone wrong/which settings to be tweaked ?
I am not able to use update sites for installations too.
However, Eclipse is able to make remote Database connectivity.
I checked that I had disabled the proxy server for http/https earlier.
If I try to use proxy, then upon fetching listing in update site/marketplace, Helios is crashing.
I am using Helios SR1.
