How to get Proxy Server information ?

Hello All,

After successfully setting up HANA cloud trial account.

You have two options to select development environment. You can use

  • Web based development workbench ( It is zero installation tools ).
  • Eclipse IDE

This blog deals with second option of developing on Eclipse IDE .

You need to download and unpack Eclipse. Then you have to install HANA tools  and connect to HANA instance

using Eclipse. For both these activity Eclipse needs to access internet.

If you have privileges and you are using office computer for these activities, then most likely your computer is

running a proxy server.  Proxy sever details has to be updated into Eclipse for it to successfully access internet.

While going through tutorials I found the information on how to configure proxy server information on Eclipse.

But missing link was from where to get these details.

So this Blog is for beginners like me who don’t have information on from were to get proxy server information.

Proxy configuration are maintained via 2 ways

Option 1) Maintain server and port directly

Option 2) Use Proxy configuration script for the same

Step 1: For your browser go to connect settings

          a) For Internet Explorer “Settings -> Internet Options-> Connections (tab) -> LAN settings


         b) For Firefox “Settings-> Options -> Advanced (tab) -> Network (tab) => Settings


Step 2: In case of Option 1 go to Step 3.

             For Option2 paste the link copied to any browser and click enter. This will trigger the download of proxy

             configuration script. Open it using note pad and search for word PROXY, you can find the server and port

             details next to it.


Step 3: You can configure the proxy server and port to Eclipse now.

             For configuring Eclipse go to Window=> Preferences => General => Network Connection

             Select Manual Provider and select HTTP & HTTPS one at time and maintain proxy details.

             To maintain click Edit after selecting the row.

             In case if you have network password then check request for authorization

             And maintain your id and password. Remember to use domain format if you have such user id.

             e.g.:- <Domain>\<user>


             Note: Do not maintain configuration for SOCKS


             Refer to help guide if required.

For other information’s on how to install eclipse and  use it refer to SAP help documents.

Let me know your feedback and suggestions.
