[LinuxBIOS] Using tla (gnuarch) through a proxy server/firewall

I'm trying to setup tla access to the LinuxBIOS (openbios.org) archive
through a proxy server that also functions as a firewall.

The proxy server is denying access when I try to do:

$ tla register-archive \

Can http be used instead of ftp in the above URL?

I'm using the following environment variable, defined with

$ ftp_proxy = http://<username>:<password>@<proxy-server>:<proxy-port>
$ export ftp_proxy

where <username>, <password>, <proxy-server>, <proxy-port> are all
replaced by literal values acceptable to the proxy server.

I've tried to use google to shed light on this issue, but haven't found
anything useful.


I've got yum working through this proxy server using http_proxy:

$ http_proxy = http://<username>:<password>@<proxy-server>:<proxy-port>
$ export http_proxy

So, I know that at least http passes through the proxy server just fine.


Any suggestions or comments?
