Let me know if the new version (1.1.1) fixes the problem (if you accept the solution, I'll assume that means it is fixed).

It appears you are correct: proxy servers with underscores are not allowed with the app in version 1.1 and earlier.

I researched the issue here. The issue is fixed in version 1.1.1 which is now available on Splunk-base.
