Trading platform from behind a firewall?

  1. Hi, I have some experience trading stocks and options (my broker is OptionsXpress), but they don't offer e-mini trading right now. I am looking for a good futures broker with the platform/software to allow me access from behind a firewall (trading from office :D).

    I have tried IB's TWS and J-Trader, but both software cannot login from my office. I believe, it's an issue with the firewall and blocking of the ports required for the host and streaming prices.

    Short of asking my IT dept and letting my bosses know that I'm trading during office hours, is there another solution?:confused:

    Any suggestions will be very much appreciated. THANKS!!!!!
