ssh vpn network question, boosts appreciated 

@sifr Ah, that would be a problem then. You need to have the inside machine being able to establish an outgoing connection. As long as this is possible you can use VPNs, or even just reverse SSH tunnels (autossh can help), otherwise it's a bit hopeless... But there could be some limited workaround, your network may just block some known ports, but have a whole bunch of high number ports unrestricted, so you could configure your outside VPN machine to listen on such high number(s) port(s). If the machine is really isolated but can reach another inside machine on a less isolated/restricted subnet, you could use the less restricted machine as an intermediary hop before going out, but then it starts to be quite a project. I guess it depends on what you need...
