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!
