Very easy: write an email to the firewall admin. If you don't want to
use the computer, phone him or walk by and invite him for a beer...

Naah, serious: either the access is blocked for a reason or the config
just does not meet requirements (e.g. access to http:88 needed but only
tcp/80 allowed in the "Web surfing is okay" rule in the packet filter).
Either way, politely asking the FW admin will give you either the reason
or access...
