Tried and failed. Our firewall will be closed to port 22 for the
forseaable future. I'll give the OpenVPN thing a go, if I can find some

I'm wondering about a couple of things:

 1. how many people (in the haskell community) have the same problem?
How have they solved or worked around the problem?

 2. is it possible to run SSH daemons on monk and nun on ports 80 or
443? I'm wondering both from a technical feasability POV, and also an
administrative POV i.e. if it were technically feasible, would the
admins be open to the idea, if there was sufficient demand?
