Define a proxy in VNC client


I'm trying to access remotely to my computer that is in my home with a VNC client. The problem is that from my company site, I'm behind a proxy and I must use this proxy to connect my computer.

I'm new to the vnc programs, so I don't know how to define a connection to use the proxy.

My laptop is well configured, the only problem is set a vnc client to use a defined proxy. Any help?

1 - I've installed VNC viewer or tightvnc viewer, but I can't find any option in it to define a proxy. How can I define a proxy in this program?

2 - Is there any vnc client that allows to define a proxy?

3 - Should I define a tunnel that redirects my connection to my remote PC? For example, if I define a tunnels that from localhost:5656 it connects to my remotePCort through the proxy will I hane any problem?

I use vnc every day. But I've never had to do what you describe. If you can do ssh from behind the proxy you are golden. You can port forward anything you want. Let me know if you want help with that. It can be a little tricky to forward ports sometimes. I still seem to get myself turned around with it.
