Yes, we can presume that the IP Address is known.

Actually the account is my Windows NT Domain account. The same account 
is used by Windows proxy for authentication before allowing internet 
access. The account gets locked (i.e. no mail access using Exchange 
server/no surfing) if the password in entered wrongly thrice in the 
authentication dialog box in the browser. (But in retrospect this 
doesn't seem  related to my home access problem).

Can VPN work through/over this Windows proxy server? If yes, then I 
would have to start reading the linux+VPN howto
I would have to try it find out the outcome.
