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.
