Amsn and Proxy Server (socks 5) Helppp

Hi Guys !!!

For Some People This might be lame but for me its has become a headache. I use Red Hat Linux 9. i have this problem regarding amsn. i have amsn version 9.0 (the lastest one) .Guys I am using internet on a LAN. (cable internet as they call it here). Now the administrator used to have UNIX enabled proxy serverin the starting days of this sevice and in those days i used to connect amsn using (HTTP post on port 80) easily. But then he had problem maintaining the system so he shifted to WINDOWS server stuff and as far as i know he uses WINSOCKS now.

Now the Problem is this before this i used to connect msn 6.1 on windows without and proxy. Now i connect msn 6.1 windows on address and port 1080. when i do the similar thing here on linux it does not work at all :S:S:S
i have these two problems which i am not able to figure out wht to do.

1. when i try to download TLS it says stuff like "token error"

when i disable the SSL thing and then provide the address and port as i use to do in windows it doesnot connect :S:S:S

One More thing i dont know if its important and worth mentioning or not still i think i shud tell ya guys.

I downloaded TLS on my machine in the earlier days when i had no porblem connecting amsn. (but that was as root user and now i want it to download it as a normal user so i am having problems :S:S) so when i use address on port 80 and enable this SSL option which is in the connection TAB in tools of amsn. I sme how did conenct but it last for some time and i get disconnected :S:S:S:S

plzzzzzzzzzzzzzz helpppppppppppppp
