I have my bsd box behind a proxy and this are my settings on .cshrc:

setenv  HTTP_PROXY ""
setenv  HTTP_PROXY_AUTH "basic:*:myuser:mypassword"

We are using squid + firewall and we have to add the rule OUT on the
firewall to let me connect to port 5999 check the Firewall section of
the handbook i think if you have a proxy you a firewall...?
