I'm not sure I understand what you are saying. I already have the
computer. How can I use hosting if I can't connect to the network? They
won't let be connect to the network whether I run ssh or not on the
computer. It would be impossible to do the project without the computer
being connected to the network. I have lots of software to install and
then data to download.
