When I have clicked over One Click-Layoud, show me Could not connect to server for plug-in information

0 votes

Good morning,

I have installed the yEd than includes a suitable Java 8 JRE over Windows 7 64-bit. When I have clicked over Layout Algorithms One Click-Layoud, show me a dialog box  with the following information 'Retrieving plug-in update  information', that dialog box is closed unfinished, and appears this error "Could not connect to server for plug-in information", ¿How can I solve it?.

I executed this command "C:\Program Files (x86)\yWorks\yEd\yEd.exe" -J-Xmx768m -J-DproxySet=true -J-DproxyHost=proxyhost  -J-DproxyPort=8080' (http://yed.yworks.com/support/qa/306/how-i-can-configure-proxy-for-yed), but not work for me, ¿How can I solve it?.

Have a nice day.

Are you using a proxy when connecting to the internet? If so, you need to replace the proxyHost value with the actual hostname or address of your proxy. Moreover, you also need to adjust the proxyPort value to the port number of the port you are actually using.

See Oracle's documentation for Networking Properties and How do I configure proxy settings for Java? for additional information.

Again, the aforementioned suggestions will only help, if you are actually using a proxy.

About proxy settings
I so sorry for open a new threat,

Below my previous comment:

I am connected a virtual machine Citrix, executing ping wpad.<Sufix DNS> command in cmd no show me anything.

and my new issue:

I executed these commands:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\yWorks\yEd\yEd.exe" -Dhttp.proxyHost=proxyHost

"C:\Program Files (x86)\yWorks\yEd\yEd.exe" -Dhttp.proxyHost=proxyHost

It does not work.

As I said, -DproxyHost=proxyhost (or -Dhttp.proxyHost=proxyhost) does not work. You need to use the actual hostname or address of your proxy.

What is the hostname/address of your proxy? Certainly, it is not proxyHost.

According to the following link https://docs.oracle.com/javase/8/docs/technotes/guides/net/proxies.html :
      -http.proxyHost: the host name of the proxy server.

I solved it, from my home works.

Thank you very much.
