Can't access URLs with ports, SSH workaround

On corporate network, we can't access URLs with ports. For example Plesk or cPanel links will not work because of the :8443 and :2082 etc…

Came across a few times some info but it was incomplete, wondering if you could help me piece this together to get it working. or if its a lost cause…

I read that you can SSH into the machine with plesk or cpanel, then browse to http://localhost and it will load the control panel in the browser on the computer where it wasn't opening previously. The ssh command is something like shh root@ blah blah:8443 :80

I tried and when I went to http://localhost, it just redirected to the normal url with the port number and it didn't work.
