Gimme a second: you are not allowed to setup a secure and encrypted tunnel but
you are allowed to use FTP which sends passwords in cleartext?
This sounds rather like a management/social/educational problem, not a
technical problem. I'd discuss this again with my sysadmin.

Oh, in case you wonder: SVN works like a charm in high-latency networks like
VPNs over dialup (at least when you compare its performance to that of

SVK still requires some means for synchronisation, and that only works across
some kind of access to some common repository, so the problem is still

disconnected from the main repository or when the repositories can only be
