I think we should try that. However, note that this could be a violation of
Circumventing the protection is not a good idea.
So I also think that the IT departments of those companies need to do their
job. If there's a legitimate reason for a developer working behind the
corporate firewall to contribute to Qt, then this developer should use the Qt
methods and simply get their IT people to provide an approved and supported
way of doing so.
IT is a supporting organisation, they are there need to make sure that the
other functions can do their jobs and that the integrity of the network is
maintained. They are not there to dictate how those other functions should do
So I suggest that each developer behind such a firewall open an IT ticket and
request a proxy to reach ports 9418 and 29418. If necessary, escalate to the
managers and and stop working when the firewall prevents work from getting
