After installing TFS plugin to Eclipse and adding our server info, we tried to connect (https protocol).
We got the error:
An error occurred: sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target

Since TFS uses Java to verify the certificate chain we tried adding certificates to the keystore, but due to configuration issues outside our control (corporate parent) we were unable to get that to work.

Therefore our only option was to do this in Eclipse:

Window->Preferences->Team->Team Foundation Server
Click "Accept untrusted SSL certificates" box.

This allowed a connection to our server.

There is no way to create team project with git from eclipse plugin.

I can not create team project from the browser (on premise) or eclipse plugin.
I can only create team project from Visual Studio 2013.

Used Team Foundation Server 2013 (on premise).

Unfortuantely, my local TFS instance is setup with an underscore in the server name. Because of this I'm unable to setup a connection to the server.

When I use "http:\\tfs2012_at:8080\tfs" I get "Using a host name that contains underscores is not supported" in the preview box and when I use "http:\\tfs2012%5Fat:8080\tfs" I get "Server name cannot be empty" in the preview box. Either way clicking the OK button does nothing and the server connection is not added. Is this a bug or can I work around this somehow?

Can anyone please post a working download link for the "TFS Plug-in for Eclipse" plugin ? The install button doesn't work in Eclipse Juno and in Eclipse Marketplace the TFS-Plugin is also not shown.

With a new TFS 2012 support for GIT as the source repository, can this plug-in will support the TFS-GIT source repository. Will it continue to provide all the features like change set traceability, gated check-in etc., to TFS-GIT?

I tried the new TFS plugin in Juno, cannot get it to work when server requires certificate. It always fails with "The page requires a client certificate" in the ssl debug log (and 403 presented to the user). The old TFS plugin works fine under same Eclipse/ssl configuration.

I receive the following error message when trying to install this plug-in.

Unable to read repository at http://dl.micosoft.com/eclipse/tfs/.
http://dl.micosoft.com/eclipse/tfs/ is not a valid repository location.

If I go to that URL I just get "Error. Page cannot be displayed. Please contact your service provider for more details." so I'm guessing the hosting is down for the actual plugin.
