When using FTP from behind a firewall, it usually suffices to use passive
mode (see FTPClient.enterLocalPassiveMode()) as long as the FTP server
supports it and you don't have draconian outgoing port blocking.  Proxy
support should work just by connecting to the proxy.  There may have been
a fix at some point (rings a bell) for proxies so you might want to try
the latest nightly build or release candidate or build from the cvs HEAD.
