My situation is this. I have just started my 30 day rotation on an offshore oil production platform in the middle of the ocean and I have internet access but my internet service provider (my company) has blocked all access to Steam. (They say it is to reduce bandwidth usage on the system). I forgot to set my steam games to offline mode before I left home so I can't play them. So my question is this. "Is it possible to log onto steam by going through another computer. Like my desktop at home even when I am out here". Otherwise its 30 days of looking at the walls on my off time.

- This question does not appear to be about videogames or videogame consoles within the scope defined in the help center.
Yes. The Steam gaming platform will accept such input. If you manage to connect your laptop to your home computer in some fashion that allows you to see the screen of your home operating system and send it mouse and keyboard input, it is certainly possible to control and order your home computer to launch Steam, enter your credentials, and login to the Steam gaming platform... assuming your home computer is powered on, and assuming you had such remote access software installed beforehand (or assuming you can get a friend to install it).
(I do not advise bypassing any restrictions that will get you fired.)
Alternatively, if you have a cell phone service that supports it (my Pixel with Project Fi does), enable mobile data and see if you can turn your phone into a WiFi Hotspot or Tethered connection for your laptop. (The option should be in Settings > Network/Internet.) It may take a bit of data but you should be able to use that connection to switch Steam to offline mode.
