if it is non-transparent proxy it has got nothing to do with amsn .and if non-tranparent then you have forward ports of msn messenger on your firewall
like 1863 and others for web and voice

thanks pal. But in fact, i realised that I had fooled myself. Simply, putting
proxy address and proxy port on connection tab of amsn solved
the problem. now its working, albeit connection goes off from time
to time.
