Well this was fun… All the examples of how to connect through a proxy from SharePoint are missing a crucial piece of information!

      <proxy usesystemdefault = “false” proxyaddress=”http://proxyservername:port” bypassonlocal=”true” />

This is the accepted route, with an exception to e added to the proxy to use anonymous authentication…
But is you use:

<defaultProxy useDefaultCredentials=”true”>
  <proxy usesystemdefault=”false” proxyaddress=http://proxyservername:port” bypassonlocal=”true” />
    <add address=”[a-z]+\.domain\.biz” />
    <add address=”[a-z]+\.domain2\.biz” />
