handshake failed due to an unexpected packet format

Hi,

I have a thick client deployed on a bunch of remote sites, and they all use a central web service (https - the client just default accepts the cert). One site has a proxy and works fine (the software has a proxy config area). Another site has a proxy as well, however on the test machine when they try and login after entering their proxy details, they receive this error;

"The handshake failed due to an unexpected packet format."

Does anyone have any idea? The web service still works for the other remote clients so i think it might be coming from the proxy? Or the proxy is doing something to my traffic before it sends it out? I cannot replicate this error and cannot visit or get a remote login to this particular external site, so its very hard to troubleshoot!!

Any info anyone could give on this would be great!!

Not sure if I'll be able to help but listing the proxy server details (like proxy engine and protocol types) might help experts help you.
