Corporate firewall blocking cisession cookies

#1
[eluser]Unknown[/eluser]
I have a government agency client who needs to log on to our CI based site from their agency network. It appears that their firewall/security package is blocking the cisession/ci_session session variables used for our login screens. This is a ubiquitous problem for users attempting to access this site, experienced by at least 20 users from various agencies in this same network over the past 3 years, while not experienced by several thousand other users of the same site during that time. The login page and all subsequent pages are ssl encrypted. We can do a reverse proxy using curl to get on from their network, so their site isn't blocking any particular content. Users from that agency can view everything on the web site prior to the cisession variable being set in the login (several wordpress pages), so the site itself isn't blocked. We can replicate the problem by blocking the cisession cookies on our browser. The agency IT staff sees it as outside software they can't/won't support, so no help there.
Anyone else run into this problem with corporate firewalls/security and have any suggestions or workarounds that don't involve the corporation/agency IT dept taking any action? Thanks in advance.
