Hi @Marvin, I finally managed to solved the problem by getting a proxy port from my company and defining this and my Datastream username and password in a .Renviron file like this:


http_proxy= XXX.XXX.com:9999

http_proxy_user=UNAME:PASSWORD DatastreamUsername=DATASTREAMUSERNAME DatastreamPassword=DATASTREAMPASSWORD

options(Datastream.Username = "DATASTREAMUSERNAME") options(Datastream.Password = "DATASTREAMPASSWORD")
