What is the problem with the uploads? The upload server responds with a long retry time of at least 2 hours.

BOINC will set a back off time if it can not send/receive data with a project. It doesn't really have anything to do with the server. Other than it being so busy that you can't get your data to it.

In that regard, it is a very good thing that the upload server was still working during the outage. Your box(es) should have at least uploaded their finished work, even if they couldn't report it.

That is unfortunate, but when using open proxies on the internet you are subject to what they will allow.
