It may not be. Earlier this week I posted a detailed note about proxy
firewalls and issues with client identification strings. 

The short answer: If you're unable to use HTTPsocket even with proxy set,
use Muffin as a private proxy with the Secret Agent filter activated. You
can get Muffin from (and if squeak is your only
HTTP client, you'll have to find an ftp site :^).

If you need the long answer, let me know and I'll mail you the thing I
posted earlier.
