problem with putty

ok Hi there people, first i would like to say this has been awesome to find.
now my problem is at work i am behind a good firewall i am guessing.
so far the only way i can access my home linux server is thru ftp port 21 with filezilla. thats the only thing that gets thru.

i have tried the following with no success.

remote desktop(windows)
vnc(both)
webmin.
ssh
telnet with putty

and ftp with ssh doesnt work either
so far the only things i can do are my web page and ftp.
now i am able to get thru with normal ftp but i dont like it becuase of security issues.

does anyone know of a way to get command line access so i can upload and download.
is there a way to configure putty or a program like it behind a Corp firewall
for, ssh basically,

my guess is they block basic ports like ssh, remote desktop, telnet, vnc.
i have even tried opening(ports) up my machine way more than it should be.

BTW i cant install anything.
thanks for any help or ideas.

Router

Usually, it's your router. Look up port forwarding. All routers have the ability built in. Just forward the right port for the service to your computer you want to access.

(Also: Moved to Off-topic forum as this really isn't a direct portable app issue)

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

putty

oh well

ok but i already have done that and can access everywhere else.
its just that on my work computer they must be blocking something becuase the only thing i can access is my web page and ftp @port 21.

remote desktop
vnc
ssh

dont work.

thanks for the help and sorry for the wrong post.

Yeah

They're blocking those ports would be my guess. Most companies block everything but HTTP, HTTPS. Some allow FTP, some don't.

You *could* configure it to run on port 443 and that might let you access it. Just a possibility.

remote through proxy

I use a HTTPS server to access a set of html and batch files.
I can start services, delete files, extract files, run programs,...
For Up and download i use FTP.
