So that everyone is on the same page, are you attempting to download pages via an http proxy?

If yes:
  There is currently a ticket in the tracker about client support for
proxies http://twistedmatrix.com/trac/ticket/1774 see his patch and
the notes about his patch for help.  It would not be difficult to
clean up his patch and make it ready for inclusion but I have no time
to do this and I don't suspect he has time either.

If no:
  Do you want to set up a reverse proxy or a full http proxy?
  If reverse: 
    See twisted.web.proxy.ReverseProxyResource and associated documentation
  If Full HTTP proxy:
    See the rest of twisted.web.proxy
