[BioC] using R behind firewall

Hi!  I am behind a firewall, and while installing bioconductor using the 
getBioC.R script (under Windows), I got this error:

Error in getBioC(libName = "all") : Your R is not currently configured to 
allow HTTP 
connections, which is required for getBioC to work properly.

I understand that I can do it through the 'install packages from local zip 
files" option, but I am still curious if there is any way I can configure 
R with proxy settings so that I can use the getBioC.R script?  Thanks!
