Need help setting up VNC from ISA server at work to desktop at home

I would like to remotely access my home computer through the computers at my work. I have set up cygwin and sshd on my computer at home and have succefully tested the setup using another computer at home. To this point I thought that all I needed to get around the firewall and ISA server and stuff that they have set up at my work was this SSH tunnel - but now that it is all set up, it still does not work. How can I put the final piece of this puzzle together and access my home computer? I am not the most knowledgeable when it comes to firewalls and ISA servers or proxy connections but I have been reading up. The computers at my work have e-mail access 24/7 and internet access through IE certain hours of the day and that is all they will spare us. My failure to reach my home comp through port 22 only suggests that port is blocked all together through my work but I don't know. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

If the SSH port is blocked, you may want to have a look at tools that do HTTP tunneling.

The following site is a good walkthrough although I see that you already have all your concepts and tools together.

You can find more references googling for tcp http tunneling

It is very unfortunate that you have to work with such restrictions on your internet connection. I bet you that the network admin bypasses those restrictions.

I connect from work to home using X over SSH or VNC over SSH
I connect from home to work using VPN + Remote Desktop

I hope you can solve your problem and thumb your nose at your network admin.
