Yes, Soap API is used normally, but BULK API is used to replicate bulk records. You can do this by selecting the checkbox Use BULK API in Salesforce details tab.
i am getting connection timeout when i set to use Bulk API. my proxy is set both globally and on tomcat startup.
set JAVA_OPTS=-Dhttp.proxyHost=xxxxxxxxx.com -Dhttp.proxyPort=8080
Can you please check if the proxy is set in global properties on UI . Also are you able to login to salesforce using that proxy from browser.
Please provide us your information to better assist you.
