SDK becomes non-responsive when I try to change the BSP setting on an Ubuntu 14 Virtual Machine


While running on an Ubuntu 14 Virtual Machine, SDK can become grayed out and non-responsive when I try to change BSP settings etc.

The following error is recorded in the SDK log:

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: port out of range:-1

           at java.net.InetSocketAddress.checkPort(InetSocketAddress.java:143)

           at java.net.InetSocketAddress.<init>(InetSocketAddress.java:188)

           at org.eclipse.egit.ui.EclipseProxySelector.addProxy(EclipseProxySelector.java:70)

           at org.eclipse.egit.ui.EclipseProxySelector.select(EclipseProxySelector.java:55)

           at java.net.SocksSocketImpl.connect(SocksSocketImpl.java:384)

           at java.net.Socket.connect(Socket.java:589)

           at org.eclipse.tcf.core.ChannelTCP$1$1.run(ChannelTCP.java:54)

How can I resolve this?


In order to fix this issue, you can make the following changes.

In SDK, go to Window --> Preferences --> General --> Network Connections. 

The value in the Active provider will be Native. Change this value to Direct. This setting will persist across the workspaces.
