This seems to be a problem with the current versions of the proxy servers. I
have the same problem, but according to Adam Berg (I think the spelling's
write there, sorry if it's not) their dealing with that in future versions.
Strangly I did manage to get out to one of the key servers on

I'm having to resort to loading the win32 pproxy on my laptop, dial in to

that lives inside the network here.
