HTTP proxies are quite simple, you say 

   1. Connect to Proxy Server.
   2. Issue CONNECT Host:Port HTTP/1.1<CR><LF>.
   3. Issue <CR><LF>.
   4. Wait for a line of response.
      If it contains HTTP/1.X 200 , the connection is successful.
   5. Read further lines of response until you receive an empty line.
   6. Now, you are connected to outside world through a proxy.
      Do any data exchange you want.
