This setting is for contacting Symantec LiveUpdate servers for updates, not the internal SEPM. It uses the proxy settings defined in Internet Explorer.

You can try and set the "Bypas proxy server for local adresses" in Internet explorer (Connections -> Local Are Settings - Proxy Server) - if the SEPM is under the scope of local LAN the connection to it will be bypassed and clients will go directly to manager.
