Well this one is simple. I've got the same situation (brutal firewall
which even strips java applet of out html). But the solution:
Get your config to work with port 23 (telnet). That's all!

In the configmenu: Option 6: Network comm mode [default:1]
Set it to mode 2) I can communicate freely on telnet ports

So don't mess with uuencoding or local HTTP-proxy's. To difficult..
