Thanks Dave and everyone. Now I'm in office and able to get the matter
working. I do just like Dave suggest, and voila. All internal network
works, along with external.

Now, to make things clear, here at my office, the blocking is not all
about security. Some high rank personnel are able to go through the
proxy as they are provided with privileged account even though they are
not having the security sense high enough (if it exists after all). It's
more about productivity. I'm in the IT system and web things (not
admin). Those things really need online documentation. I've no clearance
that high to get access to global internet. So, I go get my own
initiavite. And here I am. I do it because I need it, no sense of
immorality. It's super easy in Ubuntu, just need to take the time to
discover it. Thanks all!
