Who says that, where do you get that report? On that firewall, or on the
openSUSE machine?

Notice that “download.opensuse.org” is in fact a redirector. You can get
each package from a different mirror, so perhaps you would have to allow
them all…

Or maybe you have to configure the proxy in “/etc/sysconfig/proxy”, or
in YaST.

Just open the page you had problems with, in a browser. Like
http://download.opensuse.org/update/12.3/repodata/

Look at what it displays, there is a “details” link for each package or
file. Click on it: you get the list of mirrors for that file or package,
customized for for internet IP address.
