Knoppix and Proxy servers

I am wanting to start to use Knoppix to scan my NTFS partitions for virus' using F-Prot. This is from work so there is a proxy server that I must go through. I know the address and port, but whenever I input the info into Knoppix, once it is booted up, I use the "Install Software from disk" (this is Knoppix 3.6). From there I try to install F-Prot, my problem is that when it tries to get the program and updates from the FTP site, it can't. I have made sure that the FTP setting under the proxy server settings is correct and it still can't connect. It says something like "no tunnel" or "connection failed". Any help with this will be very helpful. Thanks.

ping the proxy server and see if you can even contact the proxy, if you cant, check the proxy and your machines ip settings by opening the network panel
