Question Up2date Through ISA Server


I am a newbie so I appologize in advance for any stupid questions. I recently installed FC2 & now trying to run up2date through a Microsoft ISA server...For whatever reason, running Up2date aborts with a status 403 error message. What is interesting is that Mozilla seems to work fine going out thru the same ISA server. I've thought that it could be an issue with the access policy on the ISA server...Now, I'm not so sure. Essentially the policy is configured to allow any protocol, at any time, anonymous outbound access. I'm thinking it may be that Up2date does something not currently supported by the ISA server. I am curious to know if anyone has seen this before & what the work around may be. Thanks in advance, Rick

Sorry. I should've provided more details. Essentially, up2date fails with:
There was a fatal error communicating with the server. The message was:
An HTTP error occurred:
URL: http://ftp.dulug.duke.edu/pub/fedora...rs/header.info
Status Code: 403
Error Message: Forbidden
First, I can get to this site via my browser & know that it is accesble. Also, this doesn't make since the policy on the ISA server is pretty much wide open to all sites & all ports. I guess the next step is to get a trace & see who is dropping the connection.
