[Openstack] Using Nova client with SSH SOCKS proxy

To access my controller I need to go through a intermediary box.

I've created a local SOCKS proxy by ssh'ing to this intermediary with
the parameters -D 13392.

I then set the environment variable,
 export HTTP_PROXY=http://localhost:13392

But using "nova list" just gives an error,
$ nova list
ERROR: HTTPConnectionPool(host='localhost', port=13392): Max retries
exceeded with url: http://x.x.x.x:5000/v2.0/tokens (Caused by <class
'httplib.BadStatusLine'>: '')

Should this work? Am I doing something wrong?
