See 'help(download.file)' -- it's a little hidden but you can just make the
external curl (which, as you say, works in your particular circumstances) the
default for remote file access from R too.

Next time please try to be a little more specific with your questions and
their subject line.  Methinks nothing here has anything to do with the httpd
server you employ.
