more questions coming up soon..
the $ sign simply means it's a hidden share that the windows GUI cannot see. It does not nesscairly need to be an entire hard drive, if you made a new share named share$ this share would be hidden from other windows computers.
for the second one, you could theoretically use SSH tunneling to tunnel your HTTP traffic to the lab. You should read up more about this.
