Derek... you may have to check this with the sys. admin, because you may not be allowed to get through the fire wall... in some instances a "socks" server must be set up on the firewall to allow you to access the net with programs like icq... and doing that can in some cases cause a security hole that may be undesirable on your network... since these are admin tasks you may not be able to get any info on firewall settings for obvious reasons

The port is being blocked by your company for certain reasons. Most likely they are security but also to prevent the use of programs like ICQ, AOL Instant Messager, Yahoo pager, etc.

THERE IS NO WAY FOR YOU TO GET INTO THE FIREWALL WITHOUT YOU KNOWING THE USERNAME AND PASSWORD. EVEN IF YOU DID GET INTO IT AND CHANGED SOMETHING THE ADMINISTRATOR WOULD KNOW THE EXACT WORKSTATION YOU WERE SITTING AT AND WHO WAS LONGED IN AT THAT TIME. YOU'RE OUT OF LUCK.

You really do not need bother with the fire wall at all. It is in place for protection from people who know just enuff to get into trouble. But here is a clue, subsitute the firewall's address in your gateway with the router's address. Here is the joke, you need to get it (router's address) from the administrator . lol
