Accessing BitBucket from FishEye when FishEye is behind a corporate firewall

Sorry if this is a duplicate question, but...

How do you configure FishEye to use your local proxy server when it tries to access BitBucket?

Hi David, details of configuring a proxy server for Fisheye are available at Hope that helps, Andrew

Thanks. Now I'm getting an error about the value for http.proxyHost generating an UnknownHostException. I should probably mention that this is running on Windows.

Hi David,

Can your Fisheye server see your proxy server? Do get a connection if you run "telnet <your proxy server> <your proxy port>" from a command line? If you don't get a connection are there firewalls in between your Fisheye server and your proxy server that need to be opened up?


The Fisheye server can ping the proxy but it can't connect to it using telnet on either ports 23 or 25. Does Fisheye communicate on ports 23 or 25?

Hi David,

Fisheye will communicate to your proxy server on ports 23 or 25 if that's what your proxy server is listening on, but as you cannot telnet from the Fisheye server to your proxy server on those ports it sounds like there are firewall rules in place to only allow certain clients to talk to your proxy server on those ports.

If your proxy server is listening on ports 23 and 25 then you need to configure your firewalls to allow traffic from your Fisheye server to communicate with your proxy server on those ports. You need to get that opened up first otherwise the proxy configuration in Fisheye is not going to work. There may be other issues that need resolving after the traffic is allowed on those ports, but allowing traffic is the first step.

Hope that helps?


Thanks. I've passed this on to my network guy. Now I just have to get him to do it. :)
