This sort of thing has historically been accomplished by putting a
tunnel through the firewall, such that by connecting to the NNTP port
of the internal interface of your bastion host, you carry on a
conversation with the NNTP server on the ISP's news host.
On the client side, then, you specify your proxy host's internal
interface as your news server.
I know of no free (or commercial, for that matter) solutions for this
for Windoze of any flavor. As usual, though, with Unix, your options
are many, and the software is typically completely free.
