Proxy settings are ignored by selenium RC Empty Proxy settings are ignored by selenium RC

on Sat Feb 19, 2011 4:50 am

I am behind a HTTP-proxy at work. I am simply trying to get the selenium rc to access an external site. for example,

I am starting the selenium server with the following options:
java -jar selenium-server.jar -Dhttp.proxyHost=myproxy -Dhttp.proxyPort=3128
-Dhttp.proxyUser=myuser -Dhttp.proxyPassword=mypassword

The problem is that these are ignored by the selenium rc. The external site does load but still
asks me to enter proxy authentication details manually even though I have given them in
the command line.
I know they are ignored because I can access internal sites, without adding
the -Dhttp.nonProxyHosts option.

I have the same problem with both IE8 and FF. I haven't tried any other browsers.

I am using IE8 on windows 7 64bit.

My browser is set to point to myproxy with the same detalis as above (it doesn't point to
the selenium proxy).

I am beginning to think that this is a bug in the selenium rc because I can't see
anything wrong with my setup. PLEASE HELP!
