Set FTP_PROXY in your environment to the URL giving the scheme, hostname and port number of your proxy. eg: % setenv FTP_PROXY ftp://ftp-proxy.example.com:3128/ Depending on your precise setup, you might need to use FTP_LOGIN, FTP_PASSWORD and FTP_PASSIVE_MODE as well. See the fetch(3) man page for details.
