Signing key Registration error from eclipse.

I am getting following error when i am trying to register my signing key.


Error registering long term key
  Error: Unable to sign bar: Server is not responding.
Please make sure your proxy settings are correct, if applicable. Supply the following options to barsigner:
   -proxyhost <host>            - proxy host
   -proxyport <port>            - port number for connecting to the proxy host
   -proxyusername <username>    - username for the proxy host (optional)
   -proxypassword <password>    - password for the proxy host (optional)


Where is the option to set these values in the eclipse with android tool.

Re: Signing key Registration error from eclipse.

I'm facing the same issue here. My machine is behind a proxy but I've done the following steps:


Configure application signing through a proxy server in the IDE

During the signing process, your computer connects to the RIM Signing Authority. If your computer uses a proxy server to connect to the Internet, you must configure the Momentics IDE to use your proxy server.

  1. Click Window Preferences.

    On Mac systems, click Momentics Preferences.
  2. Expand General, and then select Network Connections.

  3. On the Network Connections page, in the Active Provider drop-down list, click Manual.

  4. In the Proxy entries section, select the HTTP schema. Click Edit.

  5. In the Host field, specify the host address for your proxy server.

  6. In the Port field, specify the host port number for your proxy server, and click OK.

  7. Click OK.

Re: Signing key Registration error from eclipse.

I have the same error.
I think the error text is misleading.
For me, the error was due to wrong PIN. It's not related to proxy

Zucco's solution is good to solve the same issue.
