Rather I mean that kibitz requires that I be able to connect to the
machine I'm trying to interact with, rather than the other way around.
When machines are behind a firewall, I simply could not reach them that way.

Basically I'm looking for a shared-terminal version of what some people
call reverse VNC where the "viewer" runs in listen mode, waiting for
someone to initiate a connection from the "server" to the "viewer."
