Ah, that's kinda cool, and perhaps worth keeping.

Reason I'm asking is that deathray is due a re-install in the next few weeks, 
so this will have to be setup somewhere else, at least temporarily.

Ditching jumpgate when it's just forwarding two ports is kinda preferable, 
since it'd be simpler, and it means fail2ban would be able to catch
the real ip address.
