How to Set up/Use Proxy Server for TFS in Visual Studio 2010

Here are steps to get your IDE be able to use the TFS Proxy feature which helps the getting-latest process be much faster! The main idea is to add a proxy server so that every time we need a get-latest, the content to download will be downloaded from the proxy server; only when the proxy server is outdated, i.e. the latest codes revision number is higher/more recent than the proxy, a direct download to TFS server (the real server other than the proxy we are talking about) is executed.

You need to know the proxy server’s name/IP and port number to proceed – often given by the system administrator at your office, please ask them.
In Contemi Vietnam we use the below information.

The Steps

1. Open the VS TFS option
  • Open menu Tools – Option – Source Control – Visual Studio Team Foundation Server
  • or
    If you have install Visual Studio Productivity extension, you can call Ctrl-3 to bring up the Quick Access box and enter Visual Studio Team Foundation Server and go directly to the option.

    2. Enter the server name/IP and port number.


      Hope this helps,

      1. Hello there! This post could not be written any better!

        Reading this post reminds me of my good old room mate!
        He always kept talking about this. I will forward this post to him.
        Fairly certain he will have a good read. Many thanks for sharing!


      2. I am really loving the theme/design of your site. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility
        issues? A few of my blog readers have complained
        about my blog not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox.
        Do you have any ideas to help fix this problem?


      3. I’m not sure why but this web site is loading incredibly slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end? I’ll check back later
        on and see if the problem still exists.
