Authenticator firewall problem

Hello,

I'm having trouble getting my program to retrieve URLs from outside of our firewall. I am using this call to the setDefault method :-

   Authenticator.setDefault(new RicksAuthenticator());


Where RicksAuthenticator is this as an inner class :


public class RicksAuthenticator extends Authenticator
{
    protected PasswordAuthentication getPasswordAuthentication()
    {
        // this is my proxy server username/password
        String username = "richard";
        char[] mypass = {'p','a','s,'s','w','o','r','d'};
        return new PasswordAuthentication(username, mypass);
    }  
}    

I then try and get a web page on the internet using java.net.URL but it just times out. When I point it to a page this side of the firewall it works fine.

Is there some way I have to explicitly specify the address/port number of the proxy server so that my program is forced to use it?

Many thanks,

Richard.
