Open-uri behind authenticated firewall



I am behind an authenticated firewall. I have been able to make gem go
through the firewall by setting the HTTP_PROXY env var to
http://user:removed_email_address@domain.invalid But the open method of the open-uri does
not go through this proxy by default.

open(address, :proxy => “http://user:removed_email_address@domain.invalid”) is not working.
Any ideas!?
