Update problems behind a corporate proxy with user and pass




I know this question was asked a hundred times in the web, but I did’nt find any solution. So I ask again for my special situation:

I istalled a fresh Julia 0.5.1 64-bit on my windows 7 computer. There is no program “git” or “git.exe” on the computer (which is part of several soutions) and it did not come with Julia.

If I call e.g. Pkg.status() (or any other Pkg related command) then I get:

INFO: Initializing package repository C:\Users\di29394\.julia\v0.5
INFO: Cloning METADATA from https://github.com/JuliaLang/METADATA.jl

t .\pkg\dir.jl:28
 in status(::Base.TTY) at .\pkg\pkg.jl:136 (repeats 2 times)

The environment variables HTTP_PROXY, HTTPS_PROXY, FTP_PROXY,http_proxy,https_proxy and ftp_proxy are set in a proper way, i.e. http://user:pass@proxy:port and work well e.g. for all of my Python installations.
I also set C:/users/user/.gitconfig to:

    	proxy = proxy:port
    	proxy = proxy:port
[url "https://"]
    	insteadof = git://

and also tried to set

    	proxy = user:pass@proxy:port
    	proxy = user:pass@proxy:port
[url "https://"]
    	insteadof = git://

The error is always almost the same.

What to do now?

P.S.: user, pass, proxy and port were set to the actual values :slight_smile:

Download and Install package in Julia

Maybe this is relevant:


Should now work in 0.6 with .gitconfig or environment variables.
