Compile orx 1.7 - REBOL and HTTP Proxy

edited February 2016 in Help request
Hi people,

I've just cloned github repo and run setup.bat to be able to build orx 1.7.
Here I'm behind an HTTP proxy and setup.bat fails to download extra packages.

How can I solve this situation?

// EDIT: For now I solved by bypassing the proxy.

    Hi ainvar,

    I guess you could just manually download the file it's trying to download and put it in the cache folder

    Hi Enis! It's a long time I don't see you!

    Well, basically I bypassed the proxy but, for sake of a better product distribution, I think the problem should be solved in a better way other than manually downloading file.

    Maybe the batch file could ask "Are you using a proxy[Y/N]?" and then, in positive case, ask for proxy data and keep going on.

    But it's ok, it's not a blocking problem!

    I'd rather have a command line parameter in that case and keep the whole script non-interactive.

    That being said, I've tested the script it behind two different company proxies and didn't encounter any issue. I guess it depends on the proxy setups.

    Hi Denis! :) Indeed, it's been a long time. Why don't you come and hang out in the gitter Orx channel:
