That's what I thought -- not an option for me.

I found a report about using ssh tunneling to solve this

but I didn't have time/need to really study this. The report is about
GT2. But I am skeptical this solves the problem. I've seen firewall
difficulties cited as one of the major problems related to using Grids
in practice. If it was easy to solve, it would be solved by now, with
the general solution google-able...
