The simplest solution is having an internet connection with public IPs to telnet from your work to your house, but you'll need to secure the path.

HTH, please rate if it does help,

If you have a static IP address at home, you can put that static IP address in your router or firewall at work. This way you had a direct line from work to home. However, the disadvantage is if your lab computer has a virus, it would affect the entire network at work.
