How does it work?

Hi, i just registered myself @LMI, but i do have one (to me) important question about this. I work at a company who has a "very" secure network, and by secure i also mean that "everything" is monitored and one can get penalized if one tries to do something wrong.

Now i do not want to do something stupid to get me fired. Accessing my home PC using stuff like VNC is strictly forbidden (and monitored). So i wonder if LogMeIn would be a safe (undetectable) way get get out from under those restrictions?

I mean, it's no problem if websites or persistent (http) connections show up in the logs, but the fun definately ends there. So the question is basically... how does LogMeIn work exactly? If it is similar to a proxy thing, then it would be okay:

Like follows:

Work PC connects to internet using company proxy/firewall, browser request goes to LogMeIn, LogMeIn acts as a proxy and forwards my request to my home pc asif the request comes from logMeIn.com and not from my Work PC.

Basically, the signal should stop at LMI, where LMI acts as forwarding service (meaning that the only datastream i have is port 80/443 http(s) protocol between work and LMI). Is this how it works? If so, then it would be safe for me :)

Sorry for being so elaborate in my post, but i want this to be 110% clear to me before i think about using it from work.
