Yes, our spectrometers that run VNMRJ are not allowed directly on the
network.  They are tucked away safely behind a NAT'd firewall with very
few ports open and access is only allowed by proxy ssh from a few IP
addresses (for some reason the users want to retrieve their data from
it!).  The extra cost of a firewall is nothing compared to the cost of
the instrument.
