I have a pproxy running through the firewall. It is not the MS one though. I have the socks client installed on mine. I
don't know if that will help.
Do you know what kind of trafic is alowed through the firewall?

I'd pretty much come to the same conclusion.  I'd really like to get a
pproxy running here to make it easy for others in the company to join
the challenge, but it just won't work for me - I believe we have MS
proxy server too.  I tried to join the pproxy mailing list but only got
bounces from the list manager.  Does anyone have any more info on
whether or when it is likely to be fixed ?
