Well somehow you used a version of arules built for R 2.14.0.  Try the
build for R 2.13.x.

And please note that R-sig-mac is the list for Mac-specific questions
(which this is: only on Mac OS X are package build locked to a
specific version of R).

What exactly do you mean by 'package installer'?  There is not really
any such thing.  Inside R, install.packages() just uses http, and
R.app's menus (if that is what you mean: R.app is not R, BTW) just use
install.packages().  I think you need to talk to your IT people and
get them to solve their problem (and it is their problem, not ours).

>>Yes I did mean the menu item, which I didn't realise wasn't part of R sorry - I was just asking as a lot of the software I use requires certain ports to be open and there's usually a list somewhere which can be difficult to track down. Out of interest, is arules part of R?
