At least when I was in IBM they were very intelligent about this ..
clearly HPLabs is still living in the dark ages of the Internet ;-).

Unfortunately U of Moratuwa doesn't have a model to make this work
easily .. the only option is to get an account on a specific machine
which has more access and set up multiple ssh tunnels etc.. Its not
impossible but a total PITA. When you are struggling to keep up with
coursework and also do this stuff for fun, its really hard to see the
fun of it.

No I'm not excusing him however .. I'm supervising his final year
project so he is of course expected to contrib stuff here ;-). TCP does
work over carrier pigeons too, so really there's not much of an
excuse! ;-)
