That looks more like an explicit HTTP proxy request, which would be very
unusual in this context. The Host: header in HTTP requests is not the
same as putting the hostname in the GET line, and the latter is not
I suggest you use tcpdump on the proxy server to find out what HTTP data
stream the installer is actually sending. We use wget, which I know to
be an HTTP/1.1 client that's happy with named virtual hosts.
Misconfigured transparent proxies have been known to eat the Host:
