It is, nevertheless, useful to get your Proxy Settings correctly established for on-campus use, as otherwise simple commands like
'webuse foo' will not work either. Furthermore you will be unable to readily establish whether you have the latest version of user-written routines using -adoupdate-, and waiting until you can do this off- campus may waste time. Under Preferences->Internet, click 'connect through a proxy server' and enter the appropriate URL and port number given by your IT staff.

Best wishes

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 !!
