They're not too bad right now, though it's unfortunate that pony is
offline. That would be the best place for people to gateway through.

In a pinch, I can totally setup some port forwarding for you. Is the
IP that's on there static? I see it on the "Network" wiki page in the
list of static stuff, so I would presume it was configured in that

Is there a way that I can log into it to see the networking
configuration? If it's default route is (the CARP gateway
IP), I can easily setup a port forward for you.
