Thanks Kit,

Following what you indicated below about most UK universities and the behaviour of the Stata 'net' command (and you are right, I was trying to do the installation on campus), instead I tried installing xtpmg off-campus and it has worked !!

Once again, thank you Kit.

Grant reports

I want to install and use xtpmg. However the 'ssc install xtpmg'  
command does not seem to work. Any suggestions ?

I assume that Grant is trying to do this on campus at University of  
Glasgow. Having visited that esteemed institution a couple of years  
ago, I can confirm that no Stata 'net' command (-ssc-, -net from-, - 
update-, -adoupdate-) will work at the University unless you use the  
Proxy Settings to define the University's proxy server. This is  
common to many UK (and some Australian) universities. Thankfully  
computer security staff in US unis have not generally caused this
