NuGet Can't Connect to Repositories.

Hi,

Brand new to Nuget.

Where I work, they don't let any browser other than IE 7, IE 8 or IE 9 to get out on the Internet.  So Nuget cannot connect to the exterior world.  Same thing as VS 2010 which cannot get the feeds on the start page because it uses the Internal Browser.

Is there a way to download the package (the nupkg) like for Ninject through IE instead of using Nuget ? This way I could put in a local repository.  I went to the Niject website but cannot find the nupkg.

Thanks

You could download the packages from our API endpoints: http://nuget.org/api/v2/<Id>/<Version>
Leave the version empty for the latest stable. Out of curiosity, how is your sysadmin enforcing only IE from accessing the network?

Good question.  And they won't tell me.

 

Thanks I'll try your suggestion.
