I think you really need to work with the office network administrators on
this. If you have a legitimate reason to access your home PC from work I am
sure they will provide you with the required access. Otherwise its a bad
decision to circumvent company policies that preclude you from connecting a
trusted network (the office) to an untrusted network (your home PC). Don't
jeopardize your job...
