Angry edonkey and a firewall

hey hey --- the latest disaster....

Got my redhat box.. running like a champ..
I can't get emule to talk to the outside world cause there's a proxy in it's way... The proxy is a windows box, running ISA Server... <i'm currently in a linux conversion, all in due time> I can't get it to talk to anything using emule.... web.ftp.https.mail.irc. everything works fine -- just edonkey is broken... hell even direct connect works... in passive mode...

Any ideas / suggestions would be great

there is no firewall running on that machine...
I felt that running a firewall on a machine that is behind 2 firewalls would be a little overkill... so that is out of the picture.. =)

all i know is i'm thinking the proxy is blocking it.. but i'm not 100% sure...
direct connect works like a charm, but emule doesnt....
