FTP over HTTP?

I recently set up an FTP site so I could transfer work from home to college and vice versa. The problem is my college does not allow access to FTP sites, is it possible to make an HTTP site that will allow me to save work from college onto my home computer?

maybe they only block port 21. if thats the case just make a server that uses another port. cs game server -

Tried port 2121 (dunno why just seemed like a nice number) well that didnt work, so either my college is blocking FTP some other way or I'm missing somthing.

Looks a bit too long and complicated for me, I'm not very familiar with Java. I've only got 3 more months left of college anyway so I might just stick with emailing my coursework home and to college. Ah well, thanx for your help jlanka, was appreciated.

Tunnelex looks interesting. You could also use Hamachi. Hamachi is a more generalized VPN solution, so basically you can gain access to just about ANYTHING within the confines of the VPN, be it FTP, HTTP, RDP, VNC, you name it, and no one has a clue what's happening inside that VPN tunnel, making it impossible to block. And it's FREE!
