Windows 7: Connecting to home internet from college Wi-Fi

Connecting to home internet from college Wi-Fi

Here is the problem I'm having:

I'm on the laptop using college WiFi. I need to use an application that connects to the internet (SAP NETWeaver). I cannot login to application. The error message I get means I need ports 3297, 3299 and 3206 to be opened in order to connect, which the college WiFi does not allow. It works fine on my home desktop's internet connection.

Is it possible to connect from my college WiFi - then connect securely (or insecurely, I'm desperate) to my home networks internet connection -and from there connect to SAP and log on successfully?

I don't know if what I'm asking is impossible, wrong or really straightforward so any response is helpful.

Well; if your college is blocking access to those ports; then chances are you wont be able to access that application thats on your home connection because they are blocking it most likely due to the obvious security issues, etc. Realistically i dont think it will be possible to do this unless someone else knows something that i dont.

Those ports are most likely blocked because they are more often than not, used by games.
