Question in a nutshell:
Is there any public server which supports access through http tuneling?

The situation:
I am behind a firewall and have access only to port 80 through a firewall.
Now, i want to try out some xmpp client related coding.
I am on windows and have jabberd 1.4.2 installed. So till now, i used to connect to localhost on 5222 and it wasnt a problem.

Now, i have reached a stage where i need a server with yahoo/msn transports so that i can try out some stuff.
This wont be possible on my local machine.(windows 2k, behind firewall) So i HAVE to connect to one of the public servers. I guess the only hope is HTTP tunneling.
Is there any server out there which supports this? Or is it possible that I can connect my localhost server to some gateway on the net over a tunnel?
Or some other solution?
I searched the archives and found this<http://www.jabber.org/pipermail/juser/2003-August/000340.html> thread, but unfortunately, it wasnt very useful.

Thanks in advance,

In the beginning, there was nothing. Then God said, 'Let there be light,' and there was still nothing, but you could see it.
