Depending on your computer at home, if XP, you can run Remote Desktop on port 80, or install VNC and run it over port 80

a lot of proxies (squid in my case) wont let stuff like that work because you can have it specifically look for http requests as opposed to just passing traffic.

if its a good enough admin/IT/IS dept, you may be outta luck.

You can try J-Desktop from http://www.j-desktop.com/ for 14 days to see if it meets your needs.  You need to have IE or Opera on your client and it's not really designed to be a full-time desktop management tool, but it doesn't require anything special on the client.

Do you have XP on your home computer?
If yes, you can simply run Terminal services web client that is already there..
