# Mathematica 9 Internet connectivity [closed]

Despite numerous manipulations and contacts with WOLFRAM assistance, I still always get an error when attempting to call curated data (GeographicData, for instance) with Mathematica 9.0.1. Strange enough, queries via Wolfram alpha work ! Have anybody else encoutered this issue ? Thanks.

What error do you get? – rm -rf Feb 23 at 18:31
And to be more specific: Can you post a short example which leads to an error and the error message you are getting? – halirutan Feb 23 at 18:36
type SystemInformation["Network"] and see if AllowInternetUse is True and if LoadOnDemand is True also. – Nasser Feb 23 at 21:35
As it stands, there is not enough information in this question for it to be answerable. As such, I'm voting for it to be closed unless more details are provided. Please don't take this as an indication that the question is not welcome, but in its current state we are somewhat powerless to help you. – Oleksandr R. Feb 24 at 3:08
Are you behind a (corporate) firewall? I encountered some problems in the past with a firewall that used NTLM authentication. I solved this using a proxy. See this answer. – Sjoerd C. de Vries Feb 24 at 15:51
