Does using "" also somehow depend on Google Analytics call?

My work PC has to go through a firewall which is whitelisted. I am able to install packages from "". But if I try to use the new default in RStudio ("") it doesn't work even though the network guys have whitelisted "posit[dot]co".

I see things like

> install.packages("mgcv")
Error: package 'mgcv' is not available

The network guys note that whenever I try to use posit[dot]co it is associated with a bunch of Goggle Analytics call which are blocked. They are reluctant to allow those. Would the package install fail in the way I am seeing if the Google Analytics calls are blocked?
