Working with a proxy would be complicated at best.  It is not actually
using the HTTP protocol, but rather the Gopher protocol, which predated
proxies and is not necessarily very well supported by them.  If you can
get out on port 70, you'll be OK for the most part.  Being outside the
firewall (or at least behind a firewall where you can go out on most
ports) will be even better.
