It sounds like it could be blocked. Can you ssh to other non-work
computers from work? You can try fritz.hcoop.net (you won't be able
to log in, but if you get a prompt that's good to know).
We could make ssh listen on a different port. Can you find out what
ports are not blocked from your work? Admins: what do you think of
this idea? Mire has lots of port/address pairs available, as long as
it isn't https.
Thanks for bringing this up,
