Any help would be preciated


I have the same issue after upgrading to the Winter'12 version of IDE. I get the 'Unable to refresh resource '...' connect timed out when I try to refresh any of the components.

I use a previously created project using previous version of IDE. Eclipse asked me to upgrade the project after installing Winter '12.


I am facing the same issue. I am not able to refresh from any sandbox. Also not able to add any metadata components to existing project.

Does anyone have the solution on this ?


I have the same issue.


OS: winxp sp2


eclipse version: Helios Service Release 2


java version      :  

java version "1.6.0_07"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_07-b06)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 10.0-b23, mixed mode, sharing)


can't refresh from server

anyone can give some advice??


thanks in advance.



...anyone on this thread ever find a resolution?


I am faced with the exact issue as everyone else here and am unable to find any information, save that others are having the same issue :)

If I find out anything, I'll be sure to post it here


Good luck everyone!


Hey All,


I'm sure you all know already, but I found out that this is a known issue when using the latest version of the eclipse plugin [23.0.1] from behind a proxy. I was told that a newer version is set to be released in a few days, but that there were no guarantees...


Anyway, once that is released and I've had a chance to install and test, I will post the results.




If anybody still needs help...


I thik that it would be a problem with the Java engine. I had the similar problems.

Just try to uninstall Java and install newest version.

Be carefull to take the proper (32/64 bit):  32-bit   64-bit


Good Luck 


Reinstalling java fixed it for me. I had the following errors:


- "no proxy bundle found"

- and the very weird "System property https.proxyHost is set to but should be"
