application loader stuck at the stage of "Authenticating with the iTunes Store"

I was about to upload an app to iTunes connect,but the application loader has been stuck at the stage of "Authenticating with the iTunes Store" and pending for almost an hour.Network is fine and I have never seen this before.Has anybody encountered this kind of issue? what is the solution?thanks in advance.


I had this problem when behind a firewall.

I got around it by editing:

/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Applications/Application\ Loader.app/Contents/MacOS/itms/java/lib/net.properties 

If you do not find net.properties in above mentioned path then try, as it is changed now.

/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Applications/Application\ Loader.app/Contents/itms/java/lib/net.properties 

Change the line:

# https.proxyPort=443



This enables the application to use the HTTP port for HTTPS. Worked straight away after this. Hope this helps.
