You need to do a lot better job of explaining your setup.

What do you mean by "terminal"?

What node or nodes are running Linux?

What kind of proxy is it?

Where are all of the nodes in relation to the proxy and the Internet?

Are you or are you not running some sort of nameserver/resolver/DNS-proxy service
*on* the proxy?

If you're behind a proxy, why would you expect to be able to ping sites like directly?
