Hi Sean,
Your intuition is spots on: update.package also hang:

Message d'avis :
connexion à 'cran.ch.r-project.org' impossible sur le port 80 Avis : unable to access index for repository
http://cran.ch.r-project.org/bin/windows/contrib/2.1  (sorry for the french...)

I did not try it before as I installed R on this machine for the 1st time last week (so had nothing to update)

Probably it all hangs with the system manager here (who has NO previous experience of working with statisticians and other number crunchers). Any idea about which systems parameters are necessary to allow the connexion?

Anne

Hi Anne,

does update.packages() work, or does it just hang?

cheers!
