You'd probably have more success sharing something out such as OpenSSH on port 443.
Then you can port tunnel Squid over SSH and your browsing will be encrypted.

Make sure this aligns with your allowed IT policy in order to keep your thread from lock/deletion.

+1 on teamviewer, its what I used before I setup an ftp.

I even would use it for browsing the web on my remote machine so my teachers would not know i was goofing off.

I use LogMeIn to connect to my rigs (in 7 different sites/locations) and while I can use the VPNs to get from one to another, you can always use Hamachi, which is another service that they offer - both of which have free versions..!

Give This a Shot this is what im using to transfer files and i use remote desktop to remote in because most places will not have remote desktop blocked because most of their admins use it.

I used a site to obtain a free dns name so i don't have to remember my ip address either.
