With our firewall we essentially had to fake out the firewall and tell it that we are using a Mozilla agent to get out, and also gave it the proxy. To get outside our file wall this was added to our code

$ua->agent("Mozilla/4.51 [en] (X11; I; Linux 2.2.14-15mdk i686)"); $ua->proxy('http', 'http://ourproxy:8080');
