Found the cure - just required adding urllib2.ProxyHandler in the data_source 
Why doesn't Galaxy pick up the system http_proxy variables?

Subject: [galaxy-dev] proxy settings?

I'm new to Galaxy so I'm not sure if this a Galaxy or linux/apache question .

When I try to "Get Data" from UCSC or any other external site, I get a 407 
error from our proxy as I need to authenticate.
Is the request going out as the 'galaxy' user or 'apache' or the user that's 
logged in?
I already have http_proxy and ftp_proxy configured in /etc/profile (we're 
running Centos 6) but I assume there a correct place to configure this for 

The error message I'm seeing is:
An error occurred running this job: The remote data source application may be 
off line, please try again later. Error: ('http error', 407, 'Proxy Access 
Denied', <httplib.HTTPMessage instance at 0x35d2998>)

Any ideas?
