ssh port forwarding is your friend. (man ssh, look at -L and -R)
squid is your friend. (http://squid.nlanr.net/)
scp is your friend. (a part of ssh)

For example:

slogin somehost.somedomain.com -l me
cd /tmp
wget http://www.csl.mtu.edu/~mjbaker/root-tail/rt-0.0.4B.tgz
scp me at somehost.somedomain.com:/tmp/rt-0.0.4B.tgz /tmp


PS - I don't advocate the circumvention of firewalls and/or company
policies. If the blocking of web traffic or any other port prevents you
from either being more productive, or simply getting work done, talk to
your employer or firewall provider (in the case that your firewall
provider is not your employer).
