We have a user-authenticated proxy server on our corporate network. All systems/users must authenticate to access the internet. It is seamless from an internet browser perspective. We have an autoconfiguration script, or we can just enter the proxy information into internet explorer settings, and can browse to the web without any challenge/password.
I can even run commands like get-help get-command -online successfully. But I consistently receive an error when I attempt to run save-help from a corporate network connection. See attached image for more information.

see description. Just configure internet access to require proxy auth, and then attempt to run 'save-help'
as long as I can access the internet, I should be able to run the 'save-help' command without issue.
