some e-mails must be getting lost in the desert. again, i run my own servers
with my own address space, and would be willing to set up a virtual server
for whatever testing you require, including root access, under the following

1. reasonably brief testing (days not weeks).
2. set-up time is manual, so may take a day or five; if your need is
   really urgent, i'll see what i can get pushed through sooner.
3. a security envelope unless impossible. by that i mean access to the
   server from pre-defined sources, not the entire internet. adjustable.
4. it might be a physical server instead of virtual.
5. my dns is manual. if you want forward/reverse that'll add a full day.

in case you didn't know, five bucks will set you up a virtual server at
digital ocean for a month.  if you can spare that, i can set that up for you
instead (i am sighted mostly), and that would take less than an hour.
such a resource has no restrictions on anything at all.
