accessing CRAN through a proxy on 3.2.2

jholtman
With the previous versions of R (my latest is 3.2.1) I have had no problem
getting through the proxy for the firewall at work.  I installed the latest
version (3.2.2) and now cannot get through the firewall.  There is the
session:

I was running with "--vanilla" on the RGUI.  I have seen that there were
some other people having issues with 3.2.2 and proxies.  Is there a fix out
there, or are there some other options I need to setup for 3.2.2 to access
through a proxy?

What is the problem that you are trying to solve?
Tell me what you want to do, not how you want to do it.

Try setInternet2() (or the equivalent command line flag).

Re: accessing CRAN through a proxy on 3.2.2

jholtman
Thanks.  I did find out that for my work environment if I use

setInternet(FALSE)

then everything seems to work again.  They changed the default to TRUE in
3.2.2 and that must have been causing the problem.
