For HTTP (proxy), only the "Basic" authentication scheme is supported.
If your upstream proxy requires another scheme as Digest, it will fail.
Using DeleGate as follows may be helpful to see what is wrong:

dg.exe -P80 SERVER=http PROXY=Proxy-address:Port MYAUTH=Username:Password:http-proxy -fv FSV=-tee-n-h
