Well, you can run or request the DirPort on non-default ports.

See http://wiki.noreply.org/noreply/TheOnionRouter/TorFAQ#FirewalledClient

As a client, try the FascistFirewall or ReachableDirAddresses options
depending on what version of Tor you have.

That would help if the Firewall is blocking by port.

Good luck,
