Remote SQL server access through firewall

hello all,

I'm writing a Delphi app that's supposed to access a remote MS-SQL
server through ADO; So far so good.

The problem is that my app will run behind a MS-Proxy; What options do
I have in order to have access to the MS-SQL server? Socks? SSH?

Note: The server will be running on a public IP, no proxies!

Any info or pointers to info grately apreciated

TIA
