Unfortunately I'm connected to the internet via a proxy. I have no idea how to tell R to connect via the proxy. The R-help tells me something about environment variables like "http_proxy". But I have no idea how and where to set these variable as I'm new to R. I don't know whether this is the right way to solve my problem.
