Anything is possible.   For those that are even remotely crafty, the
limitations that are in place won’t stop them anyway.  As for specifically
allowing ssh, I’ll poke around the agreement and see if there is anything
explicitly stated to stop it.  If not, I’ll toss the idea around and see if
there are any objections.  It would make my life easier as well.


No promises, but better than nothing right?  Keep in mind that in Pavlov
doing this was a gift to the city, so as such it’s meant to be usable to the
masses.  If the masses need ssh for common use, then they should get that if
it doesn’t hamper the rest of the users.  Another one that is obviously on
the list of niceties would be to allow SIP.  Since the requirements of that
can be a little more intensive, that is a little harder sell.


Again though, anything is possible.

SSH does not even work


            Wow, really?  In a tech-dependent town like this one?  

            Can Go Networks/Pavlov be convinced by the City to turn SSH on?
Something like

            1. Convince City of Champaign that

                        a) Alpha-geeks are far happier with SSH.  Champaign
wants these people happy, whether residents or visitors: from their ranks
come new tax-paying local tech businesses and local-economy-vital UIUC
world-tech-leader status.  They wouldn't for example, want a visiting
entrepreneurially-bent academic, contemplating a UIUC  job,  to turn on her
laptop in downtown Champaign, attempt to check a running process back home,
then shout "idiotic Champaign wireless!   I knew this small town would suck,
I'm definitely taking that position at Berkeley."

                        b) SSH is how users will communicate with the
computers we are famous for, like, say, the coming $200M Fastest Computer in
The Freaking World.

                        c) Blocking SSH doesn't prevent bad behavior;
similarly abusive/bandwdith-abusive behavior can happen over http.

            2. Convinced by such  arguments, and motivated soley by
forward-thinking tax greed, Champaign tells Go Networks / Pavolv "unblock
