TC 8.0.3 Agent cannot register from behind firewall / proxy

I have my agent (Windows Server 2008) sitting firewalled from the TeamCity server.

Windows Internet Options have a http proxy configured and I can log on to the TC Server using IE browser from the agent machine.

I additionally have put java and environment settings -Dhttp.proxyHost=abc.de.com -Dhttp.proxyPort=1234 all over the place

and from wrapper.log and launcher.log I can see that these settings actually get picked up in the command lines.

However, the agent does not register with the server and I can see the following line in teamcity-agent.log

When I compare the netstat output while running the service against what is output when logging in from the browser

I can see that the connection is probably not routed through the http proxy rather then direct.

Is there any other place / option / config that I have to tweak so that the agent seeks connection through an http proxy ?
