pandoc document conversion failed with error 67

I am unable to have R Markdown , Notebook etc knot html doc (although I can knit word Doc). The problem is with my work computer as the Markdown code works on other computer just fine. So it isn't the code it has to do with my work computer and a Pandoc issue. I added "self_contained: no" to my header which worked at one time but not lately. I need to know what to tell our IT folks to repair this and I don't know what to tell them. Would updating to the latest R and RStudio work?

pandoc.exe: Could not fetch \My Documents\R\win-library\3.5\rmarkdown\rmd\h\jquery-1.11.3\jquery.min.js FailedConnectionException2 "my network" 80 False connect: failed (Connection timed out (WSAETIMEDOUT)) Error:pandoc document conversion failed with error 67

The part of the error message

80 False connect: failed (Connection timed out (WSAETIMEDOUT))

suggests that your corporate firewall is intercepting the jquery request on port 80. That's where I'd suggest starting discussions with them.

Thanks - any idea why it only affects my desktop not others. I also was able to get around the error by adding "self_contained: false" to my header

Hmmm, interesting. That might mean port 80 (the normal http/https channel) on your machine is disabled. This is speculative, because I haven't messed with Windows ports since NT. You can eliminate the possibility if you're able to connect to a web page on your machine with http://, rather than file://
