Default [Q] Android Market / Google Play over wifi

I've a proxy authenticated LAN connection on my laptop. I have hosted a wifi hotspot using Intel virtual wifi driver. I was facing the problem that the browser will ask for authentication on my android ..and it would work however other apps like Market or Gmail wont work coz there was no way for me to give authentication details. I kind of solved this problem using CCProxy as a double proxy on my laptop. Now i'm broadcasting wifi network which doesnt require me to fill in authentication details. Even then i was facing same problem.. Little research told me that Market uses port 5228 .. so in ccproxy i added this port. Now my problem is that Market / Google Play.. searches the applications but it doesnot download the apps when i select install.. on the otherhand Gmail seems to be working perfectly fine.. i tried downloading attachments and stuff.. I am assuming Market uses a different port for downloading apps then it uses for browsing.. Can someone plz help me out over here ???

Thnx in advance.
