This is fine so long as your system is directly connected to the public
Internet, but doesn't work if going through a NAT router of some kind.  We
use quite a few LinkSys VPN boxes at client sites because they're cheap,
easy to configure, and reliable.  Unfortunately they're not easy to query
to find status which is why I started using the sshclient service I posted
here last week.
