On my school network, the Windows XP Remote Desktop Client is available but all internet connections must go through the network proxy server (which only allows port 80). The problem is not the port 80 restriction (the pc that I want to connect to is running remote desktop on port 80) but getting the client to use the proxy. Is there anything I can do that will allow me to use to proxy (i have access to the registry if that helps)?

Thanks

Does nobody know? I have access to the registry if that will allow me to make it use the proxy.
