a) Depends on the operating system, and you didn't tell us which one you use.

b) This is in the FAQ and R/Windows FAQ

c) One solution is to employ GNU wget -- get it, configure it for firewall
usage, test it (outside of R) and then tell R about it. Another solution on
Windows uses Internet Explorers's settings, see the rw-FAQ.

d) This has been discussed multiple times on the list, see the archive(s)
and/or suitable web searches.

Hope this helps,  Dirk
