ftp.proxy usage for downloading dependencies of vim depot

Hi  guys ,

We dont have direct internet connection from our servers.

We need to install depothelper and then vim .

I have installed depothelper and now when we are trying to download vim we are not able to access it through proxy , export http_proxy=http://33.xx.xx.xx:8080 


Have read in forum ;

 it's not really a transparent proxy, it's an ftp gateway and you can fool applications into using it simply by changing the destination address and embedding the real FTP server login.


I need to know how do we use it in our case ???
