Could you please run this in a console (replacing "w3aftest" with the correct hostname in your case) and paste the output ?
That worked - it was able to resolve the address.
Also, if possible, could you please do a "svn update" of the project and run the scan again ?
Done - updated to revision 159. I then reran the scan with console verbosity set to 10. Here is the output.
We failed to reach the server. Reason: "(113, 'No route to host')"; going to retry.

The above output repeats 2 more times then....
The target URL:
https://preprod.olcsc.ntta.org/olcsc/ is unreachable.
Error description: Too many retries when trying to get: https://preprod.olcsc.ntta.org/olcsc/
No URLs found by discovery.
Is w3af trying to ping or traceroute the target before scanning? That will always fail for this scenario, because I'm being blocked by their firewall. That's why I need to go through the proxy.
