You're talking about a Proxy Server.  Something like this:  http://www.analogx.com/contents/download/network/proxy.htm

Commented:
This is called a "proxy".

If accessing that site is necessary for your job, your boss should have a chat with the firewall admin's boss.

Commented:
I would agree with PennGwyn.  If you require access to a specific site or set of sites that have been blocked you should speak with your boss to have your login exempt from the block.  Depending on what hardware/software your company is using this shouldn't be too difficult to setup.
