This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

Sounds like the proxy is preventing anything to go through the 1433 port for SQL Server. The way i'd suggest opening the port would involve going into the firewall and opening 1433, but you said it's disabled. I'd consult whatever the proxy is being run on.
