This might be the best answer:
http://serverfault.com/questions/248917/configure-apache-to-use-external-proxy-for-internet-connection

There may be other ways to achieve this - on an old Solaris server I used to have an 'envvars' file in my apache/bin directory (e.g. not in the EPrints directory).
This contained the lines:
http_proxy=http://wherever.your.proxy.is:3128
export http_proxy

Looking at the code for EPM (perl_lib/EPrints/EPM/Source.pm), it checks for 'HTTP_proxy' - I'm not sure if the case matters in this instance...

Cheers,
John

Have now established with the networks team that we needed to change the 
environment variables to use the web proxy, but while this has enabled 
access when I use wget, EPrints is still not picking it up. Is there 
another setting I need to change in EPrints to get this to work?
