Watch EyeTV shows over the net on another port
Authored by: makuck on Oct 09, '07 09:11:36AM

FYI- regarding point (a) of not wanting to expose 2170/tcp... You are actually much safer exposing that port than a common port like 80/tcp. Bots search for (and pound on) hosts who listen on port 80, since there are a lot of web-based (php, cgi, etc.) exploits to be had. Listening on uncommon ports is a better security practice.

Obviously, your point (b) overrides this, but I thought it was worth mentioning nonetheless.
