Eclipse Marketplace opaque 503 error message

leave a comment »

Was trying to install Google App Engine at work via Eclipse Marketplace. Eclipse complained of this error:

Server returned HTTP response code: 503 for URL: http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd

Leaving aside the foolishness of Eclipse downloading that DTD, it ended up being related to WebSense denying access to the 3.6 update site. *Sigh*.
