I have a network at work that is locked behind a firewall and Internet connection is available only by using a proxy server. At work, I can connect to databases that are distributed across the network.
However, at home, I cannot connect to the proxy server or the databases.
How can this be done? I can access my workstation via LogMeIn, so I can install anything on it.
I thought of installing some kind of tunneling mechanism in my workstation. Then, at home, I could connect to this mechanism, which would in turn do the required connections.
So essentially, what I'd like to do can be represented by the following diagram:
Home => Workstation => Database. For example, whenever I connect to, say, 10.140.0.1:1234 at home, this would be redirected to 10.140.0.1:1234 of my Workstation, because 10.140.0.1:1234 is only available through the corporate network.
Note: I'm using Windows XP.
