Expo CLI: Socket Hang Up

Hello all! First time posting an issue here :slight_smile:

I’ve been doing some training on Udacity’s React Native project, and an issue comes up. The troubleshooting has not been going well. I need to sign in my Expo account via a Windows terminal, which works with a corporate proxy. A few points to consider:

  • NPM and Yarn are configured to include the corporate proxy and run without any issue.
  • Create-react-native-app command runs successfully
  • Running ‘expo signin’ immediately return an error “socket hang up”

The error message says below:
Error: socket hang up
at createHangUpError (_http_client.js:323:15)
at Socket.socketOnEnd (_http_client.js:426:23)
at Socket.emit (events.js:194:15)
at endReadableNT (_stream_readable.js:1125:12)
at process._tickCallback (internal/process/next_tick.js:63:19)

Does anyone have a tip for me to resolve this issue? This is blocking my training.

Thanks in advance!


First, create-react-native-app is pretty old. You should use expo init instead.


I think that setting the https_proxy environment variable should get node (and therefore expo) talking to your proxy server.
