I didn't see a response to this, and am not an expert, but wanted to
point you in the right direction.

You should ask this question on the bioconductor mailing list.

The site is very much alive at this end (though I'm very close to it,
physically), so you'll need to provide some more information about the
problems you're experiencing. At a minimum it would help to include
the output of the R command


If you're using Windows you might also look at mailing list threads
dealing with server proxies. Searchable archives are at

and searching for internet2 might be a good start.
