Got a linux box?
Use SSH port tunneling.
Here's a great HowTo: http://www.ccs.neu.edu/howto/howto-sshtunnel.html
But very basically, you have a box on the outside which can talk to 5555 on sindome, which has a ssh connection over port 21 or 80 to a box on the inside (Your box):
�� � 5555 � � � � � � � � � �ssh over 80
[Sindome]<------->[outside box]<----~~~~----->[inside box]
� � � � � � � � � � � � � � � �� firewall
Your inside box listens on port 5555, connects to outside box via ssh on port 80, tunnels everything over said ssh connection, and then retransmits everything to 5555 on sindome. You just point your client at your inside box and away you go.
It's a $0.99 solution for a $4,000.00 hardware problem. :wink:
Don't got Linux?
Try Knoppix. You can boot it on your windows Boxen, and when your done, boot back into windows.
Here's Knoppix: http://www.knopper.net/knoppix/index-en.html
Don't have time to mess with Linux? Try CygWin. It'll make your windows environment unix-like, so you can run things like ssh.
Here's a link to Cygwin: http://www.cygwin.com/
Unfortunately we're unwilling at this time to redirect port 80 and 21 to 5555 locally, because we'd prefer to not have every web scanner and spiderbot on the planet connecting to SindomeMOO, eating up valuable resources and degrading performance for you, the players.
