Package Installation imposssible

Postby jameschampion01 » Tue Jun 25, 2013 4:35 pm

Dear All,

I have been trying to install new packages via the MiKTeX Package Manager. When I attempt to install the cite package I get the following error message.
No data,

Data: get host by name failed in tcp_connect()

Does anyone have any idea on how to get round this? I believe it may be a proxy issue of some sort.

Any help would be appreciated.
