Currently, proxy connections are only supported in DC++ for downloading the public hub lists. To use a HTTP proxy for this, enter the full proxy address (»my.proxy.com:8080) in the settings, under "HTTP Proxy." In other words, connecting to a hub through a proxy is not supported.

Using a proxy to tunnel all DC++ traffic through it is beyond the scope of this FAQ. While using a proxy can be helpful to help mask your real IP, it can also be abused for the very same reason, which is why it will not be covered.
