I can use the gutenberg_download() function in the gutenbergr package
on a computer that doeson't use a firewall, but on an almost identical
installation that is behind a firewall, nothing happens, not even a

Has anyone succeeded in using gutenberg_download() successfully with a
firewall?  I tried raising an issue at
https://github.com/ropenscilabs/gutenbergr/issues/17 with no usable
response.  I also tried contacting the maintainer but got no response.

The firewall might be a red-herring, but I thought it worthwhile
eliminating it as a factor.

I would welcome any information on anyone else's experience.

Thank you.
