I have a proxy configuration in .bashrc
http_proxy=http://my-company-proxy.com:80 https_proxy=https://my-company-proxy.com:80 export http_proxy export https_proxy
If I try to access the external world via curl, it works.
If I try to configure this proxy as a proxy in Eclipse or Firefox, the connection times out.
What could be the issue with specific application not working with a valid proxy?
