If someone could guide me in right direction...
If you have a gateway, then by definition you probably have some kind of direct access to the Internet (that's the purpose of a gateway). Do you know, or could you find out, exactly what traffic you are allowed to send out through the firewall? That would make providing a helpful answer easier.
As far as routing your HTTP traffic through a http proxy, I believe you are looking for something like this:
There are SOCKS proxies (e.g., TOR systems) that can handle all protocols, but I'm not sure what is available on your network. There are also some ways to tunnel through firewalls, if you are in a very restrictive situation...
