Nothing in the original pbi.conf as concerning proxy settings. This is the second install I did, neither auto populated the pbi.conf. I check both the pcbsd.conf and pbi.conf before setting proxy data and after. the pcbsd.conf was updated correctly.

          below); however I had to update the pbi.conf manually.

That is odd. Its supposed to auto pull proxy configuration from
    pcbsd.conf if its not set in pbi.conf. Did you have some proxy stuff
    in setup pbi.conf originally?
