I'm having a hard time interpreting your question.  What kind of firewall issues are you having?  What sort of tunneling do you want to do, from where, to where?

A little more information may be required... but tunneling will not "fix firewall issues". Tunneling allows you to pass through a firewall if that is what you meant.

tunnelling may allow you to bypass a restrictive rule on a firewall, if that firewall doesn't block your tunnel.

correctly configured, it can also allow you to set up inbound connections when your firewall isn't configured to allow that - this is because much tunnelling is in fact a specialized form of port forwarding (albeit from another server rather than from the outside of your firewall)

however, as previous posters have said, you need to provide more context for a fuller answer.
