I suspect that it is a proxy problem.

And by "does not work", you mean it hangs? Prints an error message?
Help me out here.
In your original post, you wanted to install the proteomics related
packages: gpls, PROcess, and apComplex.
apComplex is missing from the release1.5 repository and I'm looking
into why. The other two are present.
If gpls and PROcess would be of use to you, please try the following:
>From an R session enter:
biocUrl <- "http://www.bioconductor.org/packages/bioc/stable"
install.packages(pkgs=c("gpls", "PROcess"), CRAN=biocUrl,
And let us know if it works (and if not, send us the error output ;-)
