There are a couple of things you can try, if you've not already
considered them. I normally use SSH tunnels, with a proxy on a server
out on the Internet to handle the http traffic I'm tunnelling. Of course
you probably don't have external SSH access, in which case you can use
connect.c* to tunnel an SSH connection through the proxy server on your
local lan. However this won't work on all proxies, i.e. the ones which
control the remote port. In this case you need to have an SSHD listening
on port 443. I've rarely found this to fail to work through even the
most anal setups.
