I can try to prepare a suitable pull request, but will need some help to test the code - as I don't have a http proxy server to test with.

I would say that we should add a new LTI setting \$LTI_http_proxy to accept the entire "proxy value" (what was denoted as http://[proxy server]:[port]/ above), and modify the file so that when it is set the approach above will be used.

From what I found at https://metacpan.org/dist/libwww-perl/view/lwpcook.pod  if the proxy requires a password a setting like http://[user:password@proxy server]:[port]/ is supposed to work.

Is there a potential need to set a different proxy setting for http and https here? (If so, two settings will be needed.)

Since I do not think the LTI code would ever use a ftp request, so I think that there is any reason to provide a setting for ftp.
