On the other side of things, a MinION sequencing run won't work unless the computer has access to the outside via non-standard ports, which are used to fetch firmware, and send telemetry data a short while after the sequencing run has started (I think it's 30 minutes). I needed to tether to someone's cellphone to do a sequencing run during a presentation because both the free WiFi network and the conference WiFi networks were too restricted.

It is now possible to get around this by using a MinIT, which is ONT's "you don't need to worry about IT, or an Internet connection" solution. It's a start, I guess.
