    You must establish a socket connection to the proxy server and request that it connect to the external server for you. This request is part of the HTTP protocol. See RFC 2616 of the HTTP specification for more details.

    If it's a HTTP proxy then:
    Code:
    GET http://url.com/url/ HTTP/1.1
