Proxy setting seem to be ignored during an HTTP install. The
request was isn't direct to the server and not the proxy.
This was verified by viewing web server logs and snooping
the network.

This has been assigned to a developer for further review.

Confirmed in test lab.

*** Bug 3502 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

I tried to use http proxy. It seemed to lock the install up.
From looking at it from the tcpdump, it actually seemed to
try to connect directly to the http server instead of the
defined http proxy.

Btw. you also could supply some way to abort a connection
attempt. I could find no other way but to reboot.

We are aware of a problem with http proxy during the installation, and
are working to get that problem fixed as quickly as possible.  We will
post a fix on the web site as soon as one is released.

Proxy HTTP was removed from the installer in the 6.1 release, so this has become
a non-issue.
