Does accessing it through the proxy Web-based replicator I set up fix
this? (ie what exactly loses you your job, using port 6666/6667, or
using the IRC service itself -- by whatever means -- in other words
are they worried about DoS attacks via the protocol/port, or are they
worried about employees being identificable on unmonitored networks?)

I can't *host* a concall because I have no way to charge it or recoup
the cost. I could have a try at *moderating* the IRC/concall interaction 

but I'm not sure this would work: in effect it means reading out down
the phone line whatever appears on the screen, and typing in what gets
said on the phone. I suspect this would slow the meeting to a snail's
