Home to Work with SSH Problems

Hey guys just a few quick questions.

I have a server setup at home and am trying to connect to it from work through ssh.

I'm having some problems actually getting to it.

First off I'm pretty sure they are blocking the domain of the dynamic dns service I'm using.

I was thinking of using maybe a bounce around. Any suggestions on this?

Also, I set up ssh to use port 80 because i think they have the regular ssh port blocked.

Any help would be great. Thanks guys.

If they are blocking access to the dyndns domain name, then open a terminal, and get the IP address of your site by doing dig or nslookup. For example,
dig              or
Then open a ssh connection to the IP address that the previous command returns. If it tells your that your site is at, then do:
ssh -p 80

I would just like to notice that if they have blocked SSH port (though I find it odd if they wouldn't have also blocked all ports except for the needed ones) and denied access to dyndns (for example), there probably is a good reason for it. I don't mean it's a good reason from your point of view, because you probably do want to get SSH working, and I myself consider it odd if they prevented SSH connections from people, but on the other hand there are reasons for that too. But any case, I would personally find out why SSH connections seem not to be liked; why you shouldn't have SSH connections or connections trough dynamic dns services, and what are the (possible) conditions of getting a permission to use SSH. If you have good reason why you should have to be granted access to SSH, I'm sure you should present it; if you don't have a good (enough) reason, maybe you should consider their reasons -- you're still working there, and probably have to stick to their rules. Usually it's not a good idea to start quietly getting around blocks that your workplace has set..
