Alternatively, people in British universities working like mine will
need three settings: 

set httpproxy on
set httpproxyhost <whateveritis> 
set httpproxyport 8080

The first is fairly self-explanatory. The last I gather is standard. You
may have to ask around to find out <whateveritis> for your site.
However, it may well be accessible via your browser. 

For example, the sequence 

Internet Explorer/Tools/Internet Options/Connections/LAN settings 

shows me <whateveritis> -- and indeed the port 8080. 

Put these settings in your 


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.
