Watch EyeTV shows over the net on another port
Authored by: argh128 on Oct 09, '07 07:44:49AM

If your mac mini is behind a router (which it probably is) why not just have your router forward external port 80 to mac mini port 2170?

Because although he could send commands IN (and he probably did have to set a forward rule for this), the output would still be sent OUT via the default port, and hence not viewable at work on 80/443.

I think the original commenter is suggesting that the gateway be configured to do two-way NAT of incoming traffic on port 80 to the Mac mini's high port, and not to just stupidly replace the destination ip and port in the incoming packets.

In fact, I don't even know if I could figure out how to do it the wrong way you describe on most gateways.

Any gateway that supports NAT for public services on the private LAN--which is probably most of them--would do the trick nicely.
