Hello everybody,
I scanned the FAQs and haven't found anything, which means only that I
might not have searched well enough. In that case sorry for the
My problem: I'm behind a student proxy which does not allow ftp access and
I can't use iInstaller, the message I get upon using I-packages -> Known
Packages I-Directory is: "Empty I-Directory, downloading ended with an
empty directory, the site may be offline or your URL in Preferences may be
wrong." As far as I've understood from the iInstaller website this is
caused by the proxy. So here comes my question:
I can disable the network access for iInstaller, but how do I get the
packages from 'tug.org/i-packages'? Which program enables me to do a
download of a whole package? After all I don't want to open every single
folder and download all files one by one.
Thanks for your help and sorry for the inconvenience.
Regards, Daniel
