Ultimate block

 All those methods are based on a single feature: when https access is allowed, 
there's no way to analyse the (encrypted) traffic. In particular, URL-based 
filtering doesn't work with https. So you can do whatever you want on remote 
port 443.

 However, I've already seen networks where https was simply disallowed, 
probably for that reason. Only port 80 was available and thus the only choice 
available to you was: talk the network administrator into allowing outgoing CVS 

 So don't believe those tricks can work in the long term. Some admins are 
already blocking Tor nodes, disabling port 443 is just the next step. The only 
real work around is talking with your system administrator.
