The no remote access clause is in the "Authorized Site"  section.  In this
context, it seems to only be forbidding remote access from multiple sites.
If you look at the next section, B. Access at an Authorized Site, it seems
to allow for the type of proxy access you describe:

"Valid IP addresses may include proxy or cable services or other
mechanisms for providing remote dial-in access only to Authorized Users of
the Authorized Site."
