no osm download behind a HTTP proxy
|Reported by:||ulfl||Owned by:||imi|
Today at work I've noticed that JOSM doesn't download OSM data if you sit behind an HTTP proxy (which is common to corporate networks).
In the JAVA "section" of the control panel you can specify the HTTP proxy setting under general/network settings. I've tried both "Browser settings" and explicit set the proxy settings - both didn't helped. JOSM still tried to directly access the www.openstreetmap.org server at 220.127.116.11 - ignoring the proxy setting.
Back at home, I've had a look at the successful network traffic. It uses simple HTTP GET calls, so it should be possible to use an HTTP proxy in principle.
When I remember the JAVA API correct - but that's more than five years ago - you need to use a special HTTP stream API to let this proxy thing work. Might be the reason for this problem.
I won't work with JOSM at work a lot, so I'm not in a hurry about this one.
