Installing Packages beyond a corporate firewall


Hi, I was having issues accessing pypi and doing any package installation.  I changed my settings from "no proxy" to "auto-detect proxy settings" which allowed me to see all packages in the pypi repository but when I download I get an error.  The same is true if I go straight to the cmd line "pip install openpyxl" or any other module.

My question: Is there a way to download the .gz files I need from pypi and have pycharm locally find them on my computer?


YES GOT IT!  Wow, I've been trying to figure this out for a looong time.  entering the proxy as suggested in the link "--proxy" didn't work but "--proxy" without the port at the end worked. 


Is that feature available on full IntelliJ with the python plugin installed (the one that says its like pycharm)? If so, how does one get to that page shown on the link. My problem is that I don't want to use the proxy when doing "pip install xxx" but I do want it for most other things. The corporate pypi registry is inside the network and no proxy is needed.
