Proxy settings for rails apps

My app calls a few web services. Sometimes when I move my laptop to a proxy-ed internet area, the rails app fails. Do I need special settings for proxy?

Unless the proxy can be "magic" and pick up the requests for you, you'll need to somehow use the proxy server instead of direct connecting--but it depends on the proxy you're using. =r
