Because you never defined $ua, so the proxy call doesn't do anything. LWP::Simple doesn't provide an interface to set the proxies in this manner, you need to do it by setting the $http_proxy environment variable instead...

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use LWP::Simple $env{http_proxy} = "http://myproxy:myport"; my $content = get(""); if($content) { print $content; } else { print "Error: Get stuffed"; }

We're not surrounded, we're in a target-rich environment!
