Default behind proxy

My Info:
* FlashFXP registered
* OS: Windows 7
* Running behind NAT/router: No
* Running firewall - Yes (Cisco ASA)
* Running Antivirus - Yes (McAfee)
* Network - LAN

I am using a proxy (cisco ironport) to handle ALL ftp sessions.
During passive mode:

I configure a proxy server: , port 8021 , and proxy user/pass
My proxy IP is: 10.128.a.b
Then I try to connect to ( This is a public ftp allowinng anonymous access.

Which are the problems:

* Flashfxp initialize the connection using "10.128.a.b" IP (this is correct, this is the proxy IP). After that flashfxp tries to connect directly to FTP ( and gets blocked! The connection should continiue to 10.128.a.b:11005

* Menu: Options --> Preferences --> Connection --> Proxy --> Under Type is a way to define a custom sequence of username /password?
Checkpoint Type usually fits but can I define a custom login type?

* Why proxy IP is separated by commas instead of dots? [i couldnt resist to ask!]

If I use active mode I can sucesfully connect to ftp
Thank you
