I have some additional details:

I have proxy server that requires username and password and I have set
the HTTP_PROXY and FTP_PROXY environment variables accordingly.
(HTTP_PROXY =3D FTP_PROXY =3D
USERNAME:PASSWORD@proxy.uni-svishtov.bg:8080)

portsnap --debug shows, among other rows the following error message:

phttpget: host =3D USERNAME, port =3D PASSWORD@proxy.uni-svishtov.bg:8080:
servname not
 supported for ai_socktype

Seems to me like a bug somewhere in portsnap. Any help?
