web service package connection failure

I am unable to use the web services package in Mathematica 5.2. I can
access the wsdl files from the examples provided in the help browser and
I get a list of the available services returned, that's fine. But when I
try to use a service (e.g. getRate["US", "England"] or
GoogleSearch["Mathematica"]) I get the following message:

InvokeServiceOperation::native: An error occurred:
java.net.SocketException: Network is unreachable: connect
InvokeServiceOperation::rspns: Invoke Failed.  Response is $Failed or
Null.

I work at a UK university and I suspect the problem may be something to
do with needing to provide proxy settings but I don't know how to do
this. Any advice welcome, Daryl
