Hi,

I'm attempting to source dynamic data from the web (through R within sage cloud terminal, package httr). But every attempt, for any website returns in a "Failed to connect to url port 80: Connection refused", where URL could be really any web resource, e.g. an xml file accessible on the web

Is my session behind a firewall? Can I amend those settings then?
