Anything that runs on a TCP port can be proxied.  But I would still
highly recommend using a VPN like OpenVPN or Wireguard instead.  They
are fully secure, where a proxy is inherently not so secure.  Once you
have put in the (significant) effort to make a VPN work, it is simple
to use, and gives you full access to your home network, not just to
one port.  I have OpenVPN clients on all my devices (phone, tablet,
laptop), and they are just click to turn on and click to turn off
again.  But I do pay to have static IP addresses, which makes doing a
VPN server easier.
