​The Government likes people to do that: they supply a really old laptop
with an ancient version of Windows* that you use to connect to a remote
desktop and from that remote desktop you connect to another remote desktop
which is actually inside the firewall and for us where we run Linux systems
inside their firewall we then use SSH from that second remote desktop to
get to the systems we support for them. It's nuts.

* The laptop they provide cannot be connected directly to the internet and
thus cannot run Windows Update.​
