<boggle> Let me see if I've got this right: your sysadmin won't allow you
to bring SSH in through the firewall, but VNC is just fine?
I think you'd better drop two hippos on him.
He clearly needs to have some sense knocked into him.

Drop a hippo on it.[*]

BTW, why are you asking for technical advice on sshd on the hippo list?
[*] Or read the sshd usage instructions which make it perfectly clear.
Just because it's a daemon doesn't mean you can't still run it from the
command line and pass "--help".
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
