10 Outbound Proxy

If you are syncing RStudio Package Manager to create your own CRAN repository (see 15.4), the server will need access to the internet to download manifest and package data. If you need to use an outbound proxy server, RStudio Package Manager uses the Proxy.URL configuration option to set the HTTP and HTTPS proxy behavior. For example:

; /etc/rstudio-pm/rstudio-pm.gcfg
[Proxy]
URL = 127.0.0.1:80

RStudio Package Manager does require that the proxy is enabled to perform SSL forwarding.
