As i consultant, i'm often in a client network with a proxy that filters outbound traffic. Is it somehow possible to reach my home pc (running vnc and rdp on open ports, and anything installable)  through this proxy?

Sometimes www.logemein.com or www.gotomypc.com or www.hamachi.cc will work..... but also can still be blocked.  All are free and just use port 80 stuff.  I got myself a 3G card for my laptop so alongside no longer worry about it.... have actually used my GPRS mobile phone to control my home PC over logmein... bit slow and rough on 320x240 screen but it works !!

You could always use an anonymous proxy.

I don't know what ports are allowed at the proxy you mentioned. Did you try running a SSH server listening on the allowed ports at your home PC and then ssh/sftp to your home PC and tunneling everything else (vnc and rdp) through SSH?

Do you know what ports are allowed on this proxy. usually port 80 is allowed, you can use it for vnc server or rdp and login to your pc.

If the ports are blocked, then their is honestly nothing you can do. RDP uses 3389 by default unless you change it in the registry on your home pc. You could actually set it to 443 (https) and use RDP from behind someone's firewall w/ proxy, but the issue comes to what ports they allow outbound. VPN tunnel would also be an option depending on your hardware at home.
