From gathering all things tried so far seems there's some transparent
proxy/router blocking those ports.

If OP can ssh to some machine on the wild you could tunnel those ports
and reconfigure the account to use the tunnels (I've done that in the
past). Otherwise you're at the mercy of the network admin, as said.
