I have had similar problems I the past (but not with MS Office - I seems to me to was to register Widows on my PC).

I deactivated the firewall for the time it took to register the software, usually under five minutes. Once the operation was terminated, I reactivated firewall.

I did that too (by physically removing the firewall from the network) but I am doing this remotely now and cannot physically remove it from the network...

bad workaround ...
create a firewall-rule allowing all http+https from client network first.
turn off the web-proxy completely for some minutes until office register is complete.

better way: create exceptions for this traffic within the web-proxy.
