I have been attempting to use the Eclipse Marketplace to add plugins, but have so far been unsuccessful.

When I select Help>Eclipse Marketplace a dialog with progress bar is shown and it says

Retrieving data from http : // marketplace.eclipse.org

after about 40 seconds I receive the following error message:

-------

Cannot open Eclipse Marketplace

Cannot install remote marketplace locations: Connection failed

This is most often caused by a problem with your internet connection. Please check your internet connection and retry.

Cannot complete request to http://marketplace.eclipse.org/catalogs/api/p: Unable to connect to repository http://marketplace.eclipse.org/catalogs/api/p

Unable to connect to repository http://marketplace.eclipse.org/catalogs/api/p

Connection timed out: connect

Connection failed

This is most often caused by a problem with your internet connection. Please check your internet connection and retry.

Connection timed out: connect

in the Eclipse error log it has a record:

----

Connection to http://marketplace.eclipse.org/catalogs/api/p failed on Connection timed out: connect. Retry attempt 0 started

----

I am running KDS on Windows 7 64 bit.

i have tried disabling, firewall and antivirus without success

I have also scoured the net for solutions and tried forcing Java to use IPv4 only as a possible solution by adding the line

-Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true to the kinetis-design-studio.ini file

I read that there is a Bug that may be related to my problem Bug 336477 – Error when connecting to Eclipse MarketPlace

 

Has anyone experienced this problem?

Is there a solution?
