They've added us to the allow list and should be getting through, but we're not.

Until you get clarity on how the "allow list" works, you're going to suffer on this one. Are they allowing by IP address (in which case little you do at your end is going to make a difference), or are they allowing by browser type (which you can forge)?

And are you really sure you want to be proxying 'ftp' and not 'http'?

I've had little luck using FTP through firewalls, unless passive FTP is supported by the remote server. YMMV.

    It does look odd, doesn't it? But I recall tinkering with the proxy statement for quite a while before getting a working combination with
    $agent->proxy('ftp' => 'http://www.nunya.biz:8080');
    Now that the proxy server has been added to the allow list, I'm getting my files just fine. From my boss's point of view, the problem is fixed--but I still want to know why I'm silently dying when I remove the proxy statement!
