Since SAS uses the standard internet stack, there's no way you can access anything on the internet if that's blocked.
Talk to your network people to open access to the internet.

As long as only outbound connections are allowed, you should be fine. And which internet sites are available can usually be defined on the firewalls.
Once again, talk to your network people. They know how the infrastructure is set up.
