PyMOL relies entirely upon Python’s
built-in proxy support (via urllib), so if you can get a Python script configured
to work properly through your proxy, then PyMOL should work as well.

Subject: [PyMOL] Loading PDB Files
does not work with Linux
I can't get the functions to load pdb-data from the internet
to work under Linux. Neither "fetch" nor "load http://..."
nor the plugin remote_pdb_load.py will work (connection error - please check
your internet access).
Under windows at least the load... method and the
plugin are operable, the fetch method does not work either.
The familiar plugin ProxyConfig.py also is of no use. The
Pymol versions are 1.0 and 1.2r1.
We have to use a http-proxy, but the proxy-url and -port are
present in the environment variable http_proxy. I would really like to use
Linux, so, do you have any hints? How should I setup pymol as to use the proxy?
