I am running into the exact same issue. I am trying to use openvpn to connect 
to my home network from my office. I dont have control of their firewall, and 
from what I can tell it only seems to allow a connection through port 443; 
however, Im running a web server on 443 on my only ip address. If there were a 
way to multiplex this port, I think that it would be very useful (of-course Im 
running IIS on 443 not apache).
If you would willing to share any progress you've made, I'd be grateful.
