maven behind proxy not working

My workstation is sitting behind company proxy, and I'm using eclipse Kepler and maven m2e plugin to create a maven project. the problem is, I can't seem to connect to remote repository when adding a new jar and its dependencies from eclipse. I have set the proxy segment in settings.xml nad pretty sure it's the right settings since it would work if I go to command line and do mvn install to download the jars and dependencies. does anybody know how to solve this? do I need to apply additional setting in eclipse? thanks

David,
You shouldn't need to do anything in Eclipse; it is all controlled in your Maven settings.xml. Can you confirm in the Eclipse workspace settings that you are pointing to that settings.xml that you configured?

Hmm. Most companies use their own Nexus so they aren't connecting to Maven through a proxy. Eclipse does have the ability to set an internet proxy. I don't think it is used by Maven, but no harm in trying. I'd be happy to be proven wrong and have your problem be something easy to fix!
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
