[RC5] Proxy ports

I have a proxy set up on a RH Linux system.  I'd like for it to answer
requests but right now it seems that when I try to do a fetch/flush from
my work computer it cannot connect.  The work computer is behind a
firewall/proxy.  I think the problem is the firewall and/or proxy at work
are not allowing the connection to port 2064 on my personal proxy machine.  
I can't set the proxy machine to listen on port 80 because that will
interfere with a web server I'm running.

Is there an easy way to fix this?  I've browsed the FAQ-o-matic and
couldn't find anything that seemed appropriate to this problem.

One thought I had was to set up a virtual webserver on a high port number
like 8080 or something similar and set the proxy to handle things via
http.  Would that solve this problem?
