Thier firewall likes to transparnetly proxy most protocals.

for example....

$ telnet ticalc.org 25
Connected to ticalc.org.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 firewall.djusd.k12.ca.us Generic SMTP handler


$ telnet step.mother.com
Connected to step.mother.com.
Escape character is '^]'.

Raptor Firewall Secure Gateway.
Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 step.mother.com
step login:

I suspect this behavior could screw ssh up.
