Hi all,

I'm trying to post to a website using the apache common httpclient util and I'm using borrowed code from the net to power my app, when I run my app, I get a connection time out error. my app is sitting behing a corporate proxy and I guess my app is not able to reach the website through the proxy, can someone let me know how to get through?

I'm posting my code and the error below
