Alejandra did say in her first post that things work fine when
she runs R "alone" ..
Welcome to the R user community, Alejandra!
Also, yes indeed, government (or company) firewalls *do* lead
to problems which are sometimes much more prominent when using R
via Rstudio, rather than using R "alone" (or via ESS which I use
99% of the time, "Emacs Speaks Statistics").
This is because Rstudio tries to do many things behind your back (*)
in order to be helpful to you later ...
((a little bit like Windows which you are using too,
and I am happy I only have to do very rarely))
So, indeed, follow Bert's advice to ask on the Rstudio
company support site.
*) e.g. looking at all your installed packages, which is still
pretty detrimentous if you have full CRAN and much bioconductor
installed as I; also I think it installs things it needs from
the internet without asking you, and then may get timeouts
because of your firewall.
