Spooky.    I was just pouring over the same problem myself for the  
last couple of hours.  My search for a solution of getting through  
firewalls leads me to consider OpenVPN as the best solution.

But before I launch it, I would like to ensure that traffic going  
through it is used only for supporting AG sessions.  I'd be willing  
to provide some benchmarks when using this but am looking for help to  
ensure that I don't open all of the institutions resources to AG  
participants that aren't part of it.
