Proxy woes

Hi all,
I’m trying to set up Julia at a new workplace and am having some problems with the proxy.

I’m using a fresh install of Julia 1.3 on Windows 10.
I’ve set


In the startup.jl file, which allows PKG to successfully download most packages. However the download function still fails, preventing installation of some packages like GR and FFMPEG.
The error is "Exception calling “DownloadFile” with “2” argument(s): “The remote server returned an error: (407) Proxy Authentication Required.”
Anyone know how to fix this?
