This is just a wild guess, and I'm not an IT guy, but what if they
*always*  run through a proxy served on your local machine, and then
you just re-configure that proxy based on your location?

That was going to be my suggestion too. That or some kind of crazy local firewall/NAT redirection are all I can think of, and the local proxy thing is probably a lot simpler.

You could go even crazier and put everything in a virtual machine, then fiddle with the virtual networking, but that would reduce back to the local firewall/NAT redirection, more-or-less.
