Depending on your falvour of linux, you may also need to unset no_proxy:

%> export http_proxy=http://autoproxy:portnumber
%> unset no_proxy; R

         I want to install bioconductor in my linux machine. I set http_proxy=http://autoproxy:portnumber. But it seems R did not work to get file by http.

         > source(http://www.bioconductor.org/getBioC.R)

         Error in file(file, ¡°r¡±) : unable to open connection

         In addition: Warning message:

         Cannot open: HTTP status was ¡®404 Not Found¡¯


         By using the proxy I set, netscape can be used. But why R does not work?
