This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

  • use a tunnel with putty over port 443 to a ssh server outside for example at your home... – rene Mar 2 '11 at 14:14
  • use web clients, I guess – Andrey Mar 2 '11 at 14:19

If they have disabled it, its most likely for a reason. So you probably will get no help here from the folks who put those policies in place.

    Right. From the FAQ, this site is for system admins. You're not one, you're trying to get around the folks who admin your company's systems. Talking with management and/or the sysadmin team about this. – mfinni Mar 3 '11 at 18:55

You can use SOCKS or HTTP proxy.
