Visual Studio 2010 slow access to TFS

Initially I thought it was a network issue. Though I compared the performance with Visual Studio 2008 and notice a huge different in terms of performance. After a few days, it was still the same. After a few google search. I found out the solution is to change the proxy setting for Visual Studio 2010 from MSDN forum.

You need to edit devenv.exe.config file location in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE. Open the file and look for <system.net> tag. Under that tag, add the following markup:

  <defaultProxy enabled="true" useDefaultCredentials="true">
       <proxy bypassonlocal="True" proxyaddress="your proxy server"/>
  </defaultProxy>

The modified markup look as follows: 

<system.net>
      <settings>
           <ipv6 enabled="true"/>
      </settings>
     <defaultProxy enabled="true" useDefaultCredentials="true">
          <proxy bypassonlocal="True" proxyaddress="your proxy server"/>
      </defaultProxy>
 </system.net>

Now better performance when accessing TFs with Visual Studio 2010.
