We have a proxy server that requires authentication.  The Up2date agent 
will not update since it the proxy server requires authentication.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.  user a proxy server that requires authentication
2.  Launch the update agent

Actual Results:  Update site could not be contacted

Expected Results:  Update List

Sock option or option to enter authentication would be good.  We are 
behind a firewall and must go through the proxy or socks server
