I have never tried to use Whirr with a proxy and I don't think we are using system 
wide settings. Is this a https proxy or socks? 

Here you can find some instructions about how to make jclouds work:

You need to edit ./bin/whirr to set the required jvm system properties.  

Are there any other log messages in whirr.log?

Any hint?

Maybe proxy need to be set...although proxy is set system wide?
