Filebeat 6 fails to connect to proxy server

I am upgrading filebeat 5 to 6.2. As part of upgrade, I introduce filebeat 6 ssl to replace stunnel. It works well when no proxy between filebeat 6 and Logstash server. With proxy server, filebeat 6 fails to connect to proxy server. Previously with filebeat 5(no ssl) and stunnel, it worked with proxy server without problem.

Appreciate any help.

filebeat 6 config:

enabled: true
hosts: ["my_logstash_server:443"]
proxy_url: 'socks5://my_proxy_server:10008'
proxy_use_local_resolver: true

Error in filebeat 6 log:

Could you please share you full configuration formatted using </>? How did you enable SSL?
The error you are facing seems to be a proxy error.
