The error most likely means that your proxy does not in fact let
through an FTP connection to "" (the server where the
script tries to upload the results to). You probably need to
explicitly open (passive) FTP-specific ports.

For a one-time test run, you can upload the logs manually (say, from
another machine) to If you'd like to
run the tests on a regular basis, we need to figure out how to get the
FTP upload work for you.
