You need to start by discussing this with the network admin because it will
depend on how the policies are set up and administered.  Firewalls will let
some traffic through, but a) there might be some bad-user policy set up
that will get you in trouble for exploiting it b) The network admins
probably will have recommendations for what ports, services, etc. they are
ok with.

On the first day, God created the heavens and the Earth
On the second day, God created the oceans.
On the third day, God put the animals on hold for a few hours,
   and did a little diving.
And God said, "This is good."
