IE probably has a proxy set to go through your company's firewall.  My 
old employer had the same restriction.  However, using any browser that 
hasn't been configured by Internal Support (ie a vanilla Netscape or 
Firefox) and the machine will establish direct contact bypassing the 
company's security.

Disclaimer:  I am NOT in any way shape or form condoning bypassing 
security of any system, for any reason whatsoever.  I am simply 
answering the question posed.

Kind regards,
