Hi Michael,
I am not under  firewall, but I noticed that when I setInternet2=FALSE 
the problem disappears.
SetInternet2=TRUE is required to download Systematic Investor Toolbox (SIT).
I don't know why or whether it makes sense, but yes it seems a 
connection problem and no
it seems to have something to do with R or RStudio. Thanks for your 
time, though.
