Re: Open a socket through firewall

you are probably right, that YOUR firewall only allows connections to port 80, but that isnt a limit (or "rule") for all firewall-setups.
solution: change your firewall-setting(s)
solution2: tunnel your 80->8080 (e.g.) 25->6667 on your server, so that connecting to port 80 on the server really connects to port 8080 and a connect to port 25 would really connect to port 6667.
solution2 is not very suitable, but at least fun to try out.
