Smokeping is in ports. On the 4.11-RELEASE box I tested it on, it kept
core dumping, and I didn't get it working well enough using the various
options, so I moved on to something else.

Big Brother can be secured by putting it behind your firewall and checking
it through a VPN. There's probably other ways, but that's how we do it,
and it works fairly well, since there's about 4 monitors for each client
through a VPN session - Big Brother, and 3 BASE screens (outside/attack,
and various others across the LAN, depending on the client.)
