As a test for that, see if they can install VNC one one of the machines, 
and do it through that? If that works, then it proves it..
Otherwise.. I assume they're using OOo cvs?
If so, I'll try and grab it and run a compile in TS (Remote Desktop) on 
a machine of mine as well..



Spinning complacently in the darkness, covered and blinded by a blanket
of little lives, false security has lulled the madness of this world
into a slumber. Wake up! An eye is upon you, staring straight down and
keenly through, seeing all that you are and everything that you will
never be. Yes, an eye is upon you, an eye ready to blink. So face
forward, with arms wide open and mind reeling. Your future has
arrived... Are you ready to go?
