Sure, you just open port 23 on the firewall and then you'll be fine.

Of course if you don't have access to this firewall then that's another problem. But mostly admins won't like you to compromise their firewall.

But even then there's tunneling software that could tunnel your telnet session through the socks account (like socks2http does) and then you only need a good telnet client which can set it's own proxy.

Or if you have ssh available, get a friendly administrator to open a machine with ssh access for you, so you can connect from there.

That's how I got through college
