Accessing a website from behind a firewall that filters outgoing packets

I am currently accessing websites behind a firewall. This firewall blocks outgoing access to certain web sites including Hotmail. Is there any service out there on the internet that allows me to connect to a website through it's server (sort of like that server acts as a proxy), so that I can successfully reach the destination website?

Hi michaeltansg,
You can use anonymous proxy servers. However if the company blocks hotmail I would have thought that they would block these proxy servers aswell.

www.anonymiser.com should do the trick, its a subscription based service, but I have to agree with grblades, if your sysadmin blocks hotmail, they will probably block the proxy sites as well.

Firewalls are a policy-enforcement device.  If company policy says don't visit HotMail from work, then circumventing the firewall to do so is probably grounds for termination.

I am choosing a workaround by accessing using bluetooth + mobile phone + GPRS instead. It's just one of my last options. In any case, nothing stops me from accessing Hotmail anytime, anywhere.

Thanks for all your comments.
