Julia Offline


#1

Is there any way to turn Julia completely offline? I could manage packages myself, I just need to have Julia stop sending git clone/pull and any kind of web requests.


#2

I believe that if you don’t use the package manager, Julia will never try to connect to anything.


#3

Yeah, but I would like to disable it since I’m not the only one who will gong to use it, and someone can still try to use the package manager.


#4

The package manager doesn’t do anything that user code can’t do. If you want to prevent network connections entirely a firewall seems like the way to go.


#5

I just wanted to check if there were any julia options to handle that. A firewall is already used, but we would like to avoid to get there.
If there is not a way to do that, here stays one idea for the future: a way to turn off any kind of connections.
Thanks for all the replies until now.

You can call any C functions so that’s not really something that’s possible to do.


#7

That’s true.

Thank you all for the responses.
