ArcGIS Server GP service, Bing and proxy settings

Hello, I have the following problem
- ArcGIS Server machine under a proxy server
- ArcMap installed on that machine can access all the Bing base maps through the ArcCatalog proxy settings
- I have an ArcGIS Server GP service written in Python that opens an mxd, zooms to an envelope, activates one of the 3 Bing base maps and the exports the resulting map to jpg image
- running the script through ArcMap interactively works good
- running the published GP service fails because of a time-out trying to access Bing base maps.

it seems that proxy settings in a mxd project opened through a ArcGIS Server GP service, don't work or are not accessible.

How can I resolve this issue?

Thanks in advance

I'm pretty sure it is against the MICROSOFT BING MAPS SERVICES TERMS OF USE to copy the data locally.

ok, thanks, are there basemap services that allow to do so?
