Normally you can't. If that is what is being done, then it may well just
look like a hop on the route is not responding.
You can use tracert from a command prompt to see what is responding, compare
them between your office connection and at home. eg.
Tracing route to app-prd.ofs.edu.sg [220.127.116.11]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

So from this, I can see that I get a response at the ICMP level from the
site at hop 20, after having traversed from my office PC via an internal
router, then from the ISP to London, across the Atlantic to New York, then
to San Jose, over to the Starhub network in Singapore, and then through to
the Overseas Family School server.
If you can trace all the way to the server from the office but still cannot
get onto the site, then I can think of a few things that might be happening:
application level blocking at ofs.edu.org prevents HTTP traffic from your
IP; application level blocking in Starhub is blocking access; your company
ISP is blocking access; your company is blocking access. There could be
other things going on, but those are the most likely. Post your tracert
results from both locations and I'll try to tell you what's going on if you
