For the last 4 years I've tunneled through the restrictive network at work to my home computer using a PUTTY-based SSH tunnel, which has worked perfectly, as Chrome has a tunnel button plugin that meant it all worked seamlessly. I've just moved to a new workplace (NHS) where I'll be for the foreseeable future. Annoyingly, their IT dept has gone full lockdown. All ports are closed ('filtered' if I run netstat, and all look closed when I try to probe them from the web using e.g. canyouseeme). Gmail, google drive et al are blocked. Of course all the obvious stuff is blocked as well, but I rely on gmail and drive. I have NordVPN plugin for chrome, but although it connects fine I have no internet access through it. Trying to set up connections to the NordVPN servers through IPSEC or IKEv2 also doesn't work. TOR, oddly, works fine- so I'm having to use that. Can anyone clever suggest anything? TOR is slow and cumbersome.
