 +===== Proxies =====
 +The yypkg package manager does not currently handle proxies. If the use of proxies is required for your use of the Internet, you need to work-around the issue until the next release (see [[bugs>​83|issue #83]] in the bug tracker for details). ​
 +
 +The work-around involves downloading the files through a proxy-aware application and pointing yypkg to them (the tutorial below uses ''​wget''​ but any tool able to recursively download from HTTP through proxies will work). ​
 +
 +First set the ''​http_proxy''​ environment variable. For instance for ''​cmd.exe'':​
 +<​code>​
 +set http_proxy=192.168.1.1:​3142
 +</​code>​
 +
 +Run wget to mirror the files. For Windows, you can [[http://​win-builds.org/​wget-win-builds-for-proxies.tar.xz|download a portable installation of wget]]. The following command will create a directory named ''​1.5.0''​ suitable for both 32 and 64 bits.
 +<​code>​
 +wget -r --no-parent --no-host-directories http://​win-builds.org/​1.5.0/​packages/​
 +</​code>​
 +
 +Finally, [[http://​win-builds.org/​1.5.0/​win-builds-1.5.0.exe|download the installer]] and save it as ''​win-builds.exe''​ (or rename it afterwards);​ run it by double-clicking on it. When prompted for the mirror, provide the path to the ''​1.5.0''​ directory that was created by the mirroring process:
 +<​code>​
 +C:​\path\to\the\newly\created\directory\1.5.0
 +</​code>​
 +
 +You should see a window similar to the following one. Note the highlighted field which prompts for a mirror. ​
 +
 +{{ :​install_mirror_path.png?​nolink |}}
 +
 +When updating packages, simply re-run the wget command and then double-click on ''​bin/​yypkg.exe''​. ​
