Is your proxy blocking ports?
Since a ftp action requires 2 ports
21 (to server) and a port > 1024 to recieve the data on your local machine

Check if that's possible

Ftp is a totaly different kind of prototcol than HTTP (web).
Proxy works trough a port (8080 or something) FTP works through 2 ports (21 and another random)
These are IP ports not web ports, they are a part of your IP protocol
So if you have a Proxy wich doesn't support FTP transfer's you can forget this (test it by using another FTP program). If it does support it there are limitation to wich port's can be used to set up the data transfer (port 21 is the command port and the other the data port) So you will have to check wich port's are blocked and wich are ok to use.
