Unless they implement IDS or L7 firewall, you should be able to ssh your home server without any problem
Ahh, ok for me it is usually the other way around. Typically the only outbound protocols allowed is ssh. So I tunnel all kinds of stuff through it. This actually isn't bothered by the IDS, IPS or L7 firewalls. Kinda of the reverse situation that your in.
