Current MapProxy does not support direct connection to the ArcGIS REST API
using the export map call.  Fortunately ArcGIS server is able to publish
WMS services as well and you should be able to use the standard WMS
connection.  If you are not familiar with ArcGIS server you can view the
"catalog" of service published and determine if WMS is support (not by

Check out the catalog

Navigate to the MapService you want to connect to:

At the bottom you should see supported interfaces, if WMS is listed click
on it to return the GetCabilities.  You can then build your connection in
MapProxy using these parameters
