Smoke detector beeping after the battery was replaced?
Yes. When I lived in a condo I had a forest of container plants on my patio that I watered that way. They sell an adapter that attaches to the faucet and then to a hose at Home Depot in the sprinkler parts department and it will work fine for your purposes.
The admins have probably filtered out the host name or IPs in the firewall, it's not likely going to happen. Shouldn't you be learning anyways? ;-)
