Let's see. Did you open up the port(s) in your router nat.
If you did. Maybe you should check if it uses multiple ports I know Bittorrent does. If that's the case open those up in your nat too.
Hope that helps a bit.

The problem may be that because you're behind a fire wall you can't connect to the majority of people with the "information" you want. one solution is to turn off your firewall when you are downloading, of course this somewhat defeats the purpose of the firewall. You can also lower the security settings, and like stated above check which ports are needed to be opened. Also check to be sure your firewall is allowing traffic from iMesh to flow freely.

Junk the imesh and go with emule.
Forward these ports in your router console:
Trigger Port Range: 4660~4712
Incoming Port Range:4660~4712
Should be all set then...
The answers to your question are prolly better off being asked here:
