:>If I try from work, I suspect port 22 isn't allowed out in any case. I

:>For example, my port 22 rule includes mention of
:>$SSH_REMOTE_PORTS="513:65535" though I wouldn't think the lack of such
:>stuff would make too much difference. I had port 80 forwarded to port 22

You won't be ssh'ing out of RedBrick to anywhere ;)
