The local machine is running Windows 7.  I'm not sure what the other machine 
is running on, but I assume it can handle ssh.  If it helps, I usually 
connect to it manually via an https web link, and then after entering my 
user name and password in a Firepass session manager it runs an active-x 
cache cleaner program and will then let me navigate to server B which is 
behind the firewall.
