More than a few corporate sites filter 119.  Some, in fact, filter
everything but http and very little else (one I knew allowed only
telnet, ftp, and http/https outbound).

My own philosophy on this issue is:  this is your problem.  Either get
your employer to allow useful services, punch a hole, or find a real job
(I should talk).
