Why don't you try to change the policy of your firewall to pass

How did you do it?
What messages you saw in your LOGFILE of your DeleGate?

So basically, the following will do.

 # delegated -P873 tcprelay://rsync-site:873 SSLTUNNEL=proxy-host:8080

Note that this will not work if your HTTP-proxy does not permit
SSL-tunneling not to the standard port of HTTPS (443), or not
permit non-encrypted transmission on the connection.
