A good provider has an authenticated back door. Mine, for example, allows
connection on a 4 digit port that ends in 25, with a username and password.
It just keeps out the main spam engines. Worst case, I can PPtP into one of
my firewalls (like at home) and have full access from there. Now for the
sites that block GRE, and so on... I am SO with you!
