I'm attempting to install methyAnalysis for one of our researchers. We need to use it on a secure server that cannot talk to the Internet, so generally I install R packages on another server, and move the installed libraries to the secure server. I did this with methyAnalysis.
library(methyAnalysis) works on the non-secure server, but on the secure server it hangs just after the message "Setting options('GEOquery.inmemory.gpl'=FALSE)". I presume it is attempting to talk to the Internet and can't. On the non-secure server I see network traffic to server-52-85-101-235.jfk1.r.cloudfront.net at that time.
Am I correct, that loading the library methyAnalysis needs to talk to a server through the Internet? And is there a way to avoid that?
