So the firewall is something that came with the space. It's red hat's
firewall and I don't think we have any choice for the hosts inside phx.

In general, I'm a much bigger fan of hosts-based firewalling and
clamping down on exposure paths that way than an edge firewall for a
network. In this case it would also make our setup a good bit simpler if
we didn't have the edge firewall at all.
