It is totally impossible, there is no JetProxyServer program to pass it
parameters. What I think is supposed to happen:

- wine launches java.exe and passes it ALL the parameters;
- java.exe inspects the parameters, takes JetProxyServer, launches it
and passes it the -config parameter.

There are several possibilities for things to go wrong here, but it is
hard to say since you haven't told anything that goes wrong.
