That's what I thought.  Thought I'd make sure it wasn't pilot error

I tried setting ftp_proxy to (themes and variations of)
ftp://proxy_machine and either got timeouts, or messages saying
bad gateway.  I must claim total ignorance on what it should be

GUIfield2:proxy_machine, GUIfield3:port_number should translate
