I couldn't import a WSDL file, and I had the proxy set up correctly (we could see SoapUI making requests for the start page through it).
The problem was that my WSDL file had to be retrieved via HTTPS
) and SoapUI seems to ignore the proxy for HTTPS URLs.http://www.soapui.org/Working-with-soapUI/preferences.html#Proxy%20Settings%20Tab
seems to hint at as much, describing the "Host" of the "Proxy Settings Tab" as "The HTTP
Proxy host to use".
If I put in the URL with http://
instead of https://
I could see SoapUI trying to communicate through the proxy, although it didn't work beyond that (obviously).
