Node.js Question

npm won't install packages "npm ERR! network tunneling socket could not be established, cause=Parse Error"

I am having trouble with npm and node version 0.10.40. I never had this problem before and I am not behind a proxy. I have tried other solutions that I found on Stack Overflow and other forums such as changing the registry url to http://.. rather than https://.., and setting strict-ssl to false. When I do this npm is unable to parse JSON. Here is my npm-debug.log. Maybe someone can help me figure out what is going on.



I solved this issue by issuing the following commands

npm config set proxy false
npm cache clean

Apparently npm was attempting to bypass a proxy or believed it was behind a proxy. Strange.
