You also need to uncomment the http_proxy line in your lynx.cfg file, and
set it to the appropriate hostname and port for your proxy server. (You
may need to do this for other protocols, as well.)

If you're using a multi-user system where you don't have write access to
the global lynx.cfg file, you can use the -cfg= command line parameter or
the LYNX_CFG environment variable to force lynx to use an alternate copy
of the configuration file.
