I can only provide a couple hints.  SSL is designed to provide 
application to application encryption etc.  Normally, if there are 
proxy servers or firewalls, the SSL tunnels through those.  
However, SSL can work fine at other levels if you trust your 
environment.  Many proxy servers and some firewalls will provide 
SSL for clients that can make only non-SSL connections.  Perhaps 
you can put a tiny proxy or firewall with such a capability on your 
client computer and have your app connect through it.  If your 
client is already behind such, you might be able to use it to 
provide SSL.  This latter method would assume you trust your LAN.
