> Now regarding our bug here, it's clear that it's due to wrong proxy
> settings ( port set but not host and proxy settings activated ) It
> appears that port 8080 and no host is the default configuration but
> proxy is also disabled by default so it shouldn't hurt.

> For those of you who are facing this issue, at first sight, the easiest
> thing to do is to either disable proxy or complete the host and port
> parameters in the proxy configuration tool.

> To do this select the menu "System -> Preferences -> Network Proxy" and

> - Select "Direct Internet Connection"
> OR
> - Select "Manual Proxy Configuration" and fill the boxes with the correct
> settings
> - Click on the "Close" button.
