with a "git+ssh:" url.

I'll do that, unless someone else has a better suggestion.
Pushes and pulls will be two steps each, but at least it works.

I thought there was a switch somewhere to override the command executed on the other machine? You could try pulling from the machine outside the firewall via ssh, and changing the command from git-upload-pack to another ssh command to connect to and invoke git-upload-pack there. That should bounce the connection off the one machine you can ssh to outside the firewall.
