I am unable to run tlmgr due to a proxy issue:

> Using tlmgr to update the LaTeX installation TeXLive-2008, I get the  
> error message:
> [samurai:~] lich_admin% sudo tlmgr update bin-texlive texlive.infra
> Password:
> tlmgr: installation location http://proxyinfo.lanl.gov/redirect.php?url=mirror.ctan.org/systems/texlive/tlnet/2008
> unusable location http://proxyinfo.lanl.gov/redirect.php?url=mirror.ctan.org/systems/texlive/tlnet/2008/tlpkg/texlive.tlpdb 
> , could not load any packages
> Cannot load TeX Live database from http://proxyinfo.lanl.gov/redirect.php?url=mirror.ctan.org/systems/texlive/tlnet/2008at

> It works at home ok. Does tlmgr have the ability to use web proxies
