Ah, I considered tunneling. But since they have a blacklist that is dynamic, is it possible that they could find the IP of the computer which I am connecting to, and blacklist it?
depends on how you configure it and how dynamic their dynamic firewall is. firewalls aren't automatically dynamic, they either have a whitelist or blacklist listings system in place, and an admin that adds/removes ip ranges, ports and services (network traffic of a certain protocol) accordingly to monitored abuse. so if you're using something that is whitelisted (by address, like a common unknown site; by port, like the standard web port; by service, like a common encrypted website connection) you can connect. you can also use ports typically assigned to something else more whitelisted (like i dont know, outgoing email). if your main problem is the target ip you'll need to have a proxy setup on a whitelisted machine/iprange.
that being said, if you work in a place that doesn't let you use your computer at will, you should probably consider working somewhere more work friendly. unless you're one of those people without self-control over their distractions / procastination habits.
As per configuring flash, could you please elaborate? It is not as easy to do on a portable installation of the Tor bundle, as it is on Firefox with the Tor button. I have attempted to research, and configure, but I did not have success.
no clue, haven't used it.
Is there a way that chrome could be configured to use Tor?
yes. i think you're using the tor browser bundle fromhttps://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html.en
and that comes with a modified version of firefox. but technically speaking you can install tor as a service on the machine itself and have _all_ your connections go through tor, not just your standard browser requests (like the the bundle does). or atleast you used to be able to install that, maybe now they only have the browser bundle available as a standard download and you need to dig deeper to find the other stuff?! it will also depend on what permissions you have to install software on your machine at work ofcourse.
