Julia on Windows behind a Firewall.
Andrew B. Collier
I work on a Windows machine behind a corporate firewall during the day. It’s not optimal, but @rlnel kindly passed this information on to me, which has made the situation far more tolerable.

$ git config -global url."https://github.com/".insteadOf firstname.lastname@example.org:
That’ll tell git to use HTTPS rather than SSH.

julia> ENV["HOMEDRIVE"] = "C:" julia> ENV["HOME"] = "C:\\Users\\userName"; julia> Pkg.init()
Obviously you need to substitute something appropriate for
If you want to make those changes permanent, enter them in a
.juliarc.jl file on the network drive.
