If your work uses a transparent proxy for port 80, it's going to see the
VNC traffic as invalid HTTP data and probably mangle it or drop it.

You'd actually be better off using ssh to do encrypted port tunnelling,
since your firewall allows it already.  Running VNC unencrypted across the
Internet is dangerous.

Either way, try one of the other available ports.  Port 22 unlikely to be
proxied in any case.
