Alas, no it produces no output and hangs.

Well, the setup for the card is so transparent that I'm not even sure
what network device it is using. The card does not use the typical
OS X interface for networks.

This seems to at least produce a bit of output before hanging:

LM000953070:~ tlclune$ mpirun -np 1 -mca oob_tcp_exclude ppp0 uptime
[153.sub-70-211-6.myvzw.com:07562] [0,0,0] mca_oob_tcp_init: invalid
address '' returned for selected oob interfaces.
[153.sub-70-211-6.myvzw.com:07562] [0,0,0] ORTE_ERROR_LOG: Error in
file oob_tcp.c at line 1216

Perhaps meaningful?

Cheers,
