    11== Installing GSAS-II with a Single-Step Download (with figures) ==
    22
    3 This process downloads an installer that will place a working version of Python and the required packages onto your computer, it will then initially install a slightly out-of-date version of GSAS-II including the binaries files needed for running on a Mac. Finally, the distribution site will be checked and updates will be applied to bring GSAS-II up to date (usually with minor download requirements). The installer can be moved to and run on computers without an internet connection, but the update step will fail, leaving a working up not out-of-date version of GSAS-II.

This installer can be moved to computers without an internet connection and then run on them. This will provide a working, but not quite up-to-date version of GSAS-II. Transferring this installer can also be used to decrease the amount of downloads needed where network access is slow or expensive.

    281283If the above "curl" command in step 1 fails, but you are able to download the same file in a web browser, your network is most likely set up so that internet traffic is routed through a proxy computer. If you have a proxy, you will need to know either the name or IP address of the proxy computer and you will need to know the IP port (usually 80 but sometimes something else, such as 8080 or 8000.) Finding a network administrator who knows what your site is doing can be tough but may be needed to get updating to work. The web site http:/www.whatismyproxy.com/ may help.

    283 The easiest way to setup a proxy is to download the installation file with a browser and start it, as described in steps A1 and A2 below, then continue with step 2, above. After completing this installation process, then start GSAS-II and from inside GSAS-II use the File/"Edit Proxy" menu command to enter the proxy information; check if the values work using the Help/"Check for Updates" menu command to update to the latest version.
