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
