Question ssh forwarding+remote desktop

My school recently changed their firewall so that i cant ssh or remote desktop into any of my computers directly from outside the network. i can ssh into the computer science server and then from there into my linux computer but i also need to be able to use remote desktop when i am at work. Is it possible to use ssh port forwarding/ssh tunneling through the computer science dept computer to connect to remote desktop similar to how i can connect to ssh? if so how would this be done?

Thanks in advance.

Yes you can you will need to forward the rdesktop port from your home windows machine to a port on the computer science machine and then probably onto your workstation as well.

Before getting into this sort of complex stuff - have you tried running your SSH server on a port other than 22? For example - if you don't have a webserver try it on port 80 and if you don't have a pop server try it on port 110.
