"Check For Updates" Does Not Work When There Is A HTTP Proxy

Operating system version: XP


I have to use a HTTP Proxy to communicate with the Internet; if I stop using the proxy and use a direct connection to the Internet, I cannot access HTTP via my Web browser.

Ever since I have had to use the HTTP Proxy, the "Check For Updates" cannot access the FileZilla information over the internet. Here is a log:

Status: Disconnected from server
Status: Downloading /updatecheck.php?platform=i586-pc-mingw32msvc&version=

Status: Connecting to
Status: Connection attempt failed with "ETIMEDOUT - Connection attempt timed out".
Error: Disconnected from server: ETIMEDOUT - Connection attempt timed out
Error: Disconnected from server
Error: File transfer failed

However, when I access the URL
"" from IE, which is using a HTTP proxy, I obtain a respose; here is the response:

Can the "Check For Updates" be modified to use a HTTP Proxy, either using the one configured in IE or one configured separately in FileZilla?
