Synchronizing with an Internet time server over HTTP

I cannot synchronize the time of my machine because the IT department blocks the related ports (I don't know why). Is there a practical way to synchronize the time over http?

It appears likely that your company is syncing time to an internal source. In a domain this is very important. If you are having issues with this contact your IT department.
