Pip install couchbase issue - "Connection to pypi.org timed out"

I am attempting to pip install couchbase python SDK on a Windows 10 machine. I continue to have this timeout issue. From what I’ve read while googling, it could be a proxy issue. Is it true that pip cannot be run with a proxy? In Windows 10, I don’t find a way to go without a proxy. I’ve tried to go with a manual proxy and exclude pypi.org.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
