Hello All,

I'm a very new to Maven, (Just gone through couple of documents with no practical exposure) and I downloaded Maven 2.x and after install, I ran mvn.bat out of the box as below

and I got the below error message

Are there any setting changes, I'm expected to do before running this command? Is Maven not ready to use out of box? Please advice.

You are almost certainly being blocked by your proxy server, check the online documentation on how to configure around that. I'd also highly recommend the free "Maven The Definitive Guide" PDF by Sonatype
