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we need a get-latest, the content to download will be downloaded from the proxy server; only when the proxy server is outdated, i.e. the latest codes revision number is higher/more recent than the proxy, a direct download to TFS server (the real server other than the proxy we are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.
- Open menu Tools – Option – Source Control – Visual Studio Team Foundation Server
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,
