What about instead of it trying to make a connection to you, you
configure a dynamic DNS client on it and have it register its
ISP-assigned IP address with a DDNS provider? I've never looked for
myself but I'm sure there are some free ones out there.
Then you could connect to it using its name (using SSH or whatever).

What I would really like is some way for him to press a button (the
would have no keyboard) to initiate a dial-out connection. Once
would like the machine to establish a connection back to me (I wouldn't
able to connect to it as I wouldn't know it's IP address and it may be
a NAT router). Maybe a PPP over SSH connection or something so that I
in from where I am and nurgle his configuration files or whatever.
Thanks for any ideas.
