Opps your proxy won't let you go out!

If you have tried installing SUN's HPC-stack Developer edition for Solaris behind the proxy - which helps developers with parallel computing to deploy apps faster and easier - might stall when the installer asks you download openmotif.

If you have came across this problem and despite setting the proxy when installer asks you, simply exit the installer and set the proxy in command line like much the same way you would do for your favourite 'wget' ;) i.e.

If you are using bash, export http_proxy='your.proxy:port'
