access them from "outside".
As an alternative, depending on your situation, you could install the
server on a machine known to have clean access to the internet. Then
connect to that machine. Once that works, then use that connection to
connect back through the firewall to your internal machines. Yes this
isn't really required, but it will allow you to simulate the
