Java applet - firewall issues

I have VNC running as a service on my WindowsXP box without a
firewall (cable) through port 5844 (for Java applet).

I can access it from just about anywhere, but when I am at work it
doesn't work.

I can get to the VNC authentication screen in the java applet and
type in a password, but when I hit connect, it sits there for a while
and then I get "java.net.NoRouteToHostException: Operation timed out"

My guess is that something is blocked at my work, but is there a way
around this?

Thank you,
Anthony
