connections cannot be made to arbitrary UDP ports.
+Q: How do I use zephyr from behind my firewall, or without recompiling with kerberos support if needed?
+A: You can use tzc, "Trivial Zephyr Client" and ssh to run zephyr from a machine
+that is behind a firewall or NAT. First, make sure that tzc is installed and working on the
+remote machine. The best version of tzc to use can be found <a href="http://www.club.cc.cmu.edu/debian/dists/testing/contrib/source/tzc-cclub_001-3.tar.gz">here</a>. Second, make sure that you can make a passwordless ssh
+connection to the remote machine and get kerberos 4 tickets.
+Then, click on "Show more options", enable "Use tzc", and set the tzc command to

+Alternately, if you have tzc working on your machine, you can enable "Use tzc", and set the tzc
