I'm at a hotel that blocks outgoing connections on port 22, which makes it difficult to get work done.

I suggest to configure the ssh daemon on hg.mozilla.org to support alternative ports.
This is as simple as editing /etc/ssh/sshd_config and in addition to the existing "Port 22" line, add additional lines with additional port numbers.

I suggest to support
Port 21
Port 2222

Just wanted to add: NOT urgent.

I was able to work around it using a VPN.

Kai, I think we already use 222 and 2222 for other services (hg.ecmascript.org for example). I'm not really sure we should open up more ports, CC Security Assurance for their thoughts on this as well. Working around with the VPN is a great option (compared to opening up more ports, IMHO).

I don't think we'd want to open up more ports at this point. If needed we can look into it in the future.
