R not connecting to API’s through proxy?

Peter Meyer

If you’re accessing the internet through some sort of company proxy server, then you might have had issues connecting to API’s in R.
I got the problem while trying to use the RSiteCatalyst library, and I didn’t really get any error messages, that made it clear to me what was causing the issue.

But then I stumbled upon the solution, while I was searching Google for a solution, after a lot of unsuccessful attempts.
It helps a lot, if you, more specifically, know what to search for 😉
