On one of our clusters we have a 'copyq' (cloned from APAC) where jobs run on 
the head node of the cluster with access to the Internet with some fairly 
strict limits.

Our Torque config for the queue looks like:

# Create and define queue copyq
create queue copyq
set queue copyq queue_type = Execution
set queue copyq Priority = 18
set queue copyq resources_max.cput = 04:00:00
set queue copyq resources_max.ncpus = 1
set queue copyq resources_max.vmem = 1024mb
set queue copyq resources_max.walltime = 10:00:00
set queue copyq resources_min.nice = 0
set queue copyq resources_default.cput = 04:00:00
set queue copyq resources_default.ncpus = 1
set queue copyq resources_default.nice = 0
set queue copyq resources_default.vmem = 100mb
set queue copyq resources_default.walltime = 10:00:00
set queue copyq max_user_run = 4
set queue copyq enabled = True
set queue copyq started = True

Then in Moab we use a standing reservation with hostlist to bind that queue to 
a the login node:

SRCFG[copyq] HOSTLIST=^edda$
SRCFG[copyq] CLASSLIST=copyq
SRCFG[copyq] COMMENT="Standing reservation for copyq"
