Remot server access using a proxy

I have a work laptop where I have to access my remote servers via a proxy server. I am using Komodo IDE 8.5.4 with the plugin Remote Drive tree 1.4.3. I would love to continue to use Komodo because I like the interface but I have to go through a localhost proxy to be able to access my files. SecureCRT and UltraEdit both support this functionality. How can I do that with Komodo. If I need to upgrade to IDE 9 then I will get it done, I just need to know how to do it.
