Adjustable timeout in Maintenance Tool

  • Hello,

    I am behind a company proxy which renders me unable to use the maintenance tool.

    The company proxy will check unknown files for viruses. If the file is clean, the download may continue. During the check, the maintenance tool does not receive any bytes. For larger packets, like Qt creator, this ends in a timeout. Interestingly, when I retry the download, the download URI seems to change such that the proxy does not recognize the file and downloads and checks it again.

    This is a major hassle for development. While using the offline installer is fine, I can basically not update my installation at all.

    It looks like I have to increase the timeout to make the download work. Is there a way to do this?

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    That's an interesting case. I'd recommend bringing it to the interest mailing list. You'll find there Qt's developers/maintainers. This forum is more user oriented.

  • makes sense :) For anyone interested, I filed a bug here:

  • @Mitmischer I went through a similar situation and my solution was to download the tools I need "at home" with no proxy in the middle.
    Good you filed a feature request.
    If you issue is solved, please don't forget to mark your post as such. Thanks.

  • Yes, I went a similar route - I downloaded the offline installer through the proxy and that went fine - however I cannot update the installation now which is annoying :| Anyway, you're right, this topic can be closed :)
