You still need some web access in order to access a web-based proxy...
Is www.phpproxy.fr the only outer site you can connect directly to?

I am just curious of what kind of LAN you have got. :) How do you
update your OS, anyway? How do you download files?

Try the following:

    # Download phpproxy
    wget -c 'http://idea.hosting.lv/a/phpproxy/phpproxy-0.6.tar.gz'

    # Unpack
    tar -xzf phpproxy-0.6.tar.gz

    # Launch PHPProxy client
    cd phpproxy-0.6
    python phpproxy.py

    # In another terminal, try running cabal with `http_proxy'
    http_proxy=http://localhost:8080/ cabal update --verbose=3

Please, report your progress.

Good luck!
