Hi all,

First of all sorry for the previous wrong post.

What i mean is,
I have written an servlet, wherein i have made a request to get the data from OnDemand server which is an secured server (https), it works fine if i am connected to VPN (i.e. with proxy) and does not give the repsonse if i am not connected to VPN.

I'm providing you the snippet of the servlet:

protected void doGet(HttpServletRequest req, HttpServletResponse resp) throws IOException {
String userName = req.getParameter("userName");
String userPassword = req.getParameter("userPassword");
System.out.println("Inside queryOnDemand();");

URL url = new URL(queryStr);
HttpURLConnection urlConnection = (HttpURLConnection) url.openConnection();
urlConnection.setRequestProperty("Content-Type", "application/xml");
urlConnection.setRequestProperty("UserName", userName);
urlConnection.setRequestProperty("Password", userPassword);

CookieValue = urlConnection.getHeaderField ("JSESSIONID").toString();

System.out.println("CookieValue ---> "+CookieValue);

if(CookieValue == "")
System.out.println("Login Failure!");
CookieValue = CookieValue.substring(CookieValue.indexOf("JSESSIONID"), CookieValue.indexOf("; path"));

System.out.println("My Seesion ID = " + CookieValue);
} catch (Exception e) {

So when i run the servlet and when connected to vpn through proxy, it does not give me the session ID.

So does anybody has any solution to it?

Thanks in advance,

your body says the opposite of what you're topic says.

what exactly are you trying to do? when does it work and when does it not? do you have any logs?
