I forgot to open a pinhole for IMAPS on my home server
before coming over to Italy for a few weeks.
I can ssh into my server,
and thought I would be able to run firefox on that machine
and open a pinhole for IMAPS on the modem
(which only allows local access).
But when I run firefox on my server in Ireland
I never see anything on my laptop in Italy.
Could you solve my little problem for me, please?
Eg could I change IMAPS on the server
to use the same port as ssh?
Or is there some other way of accessing my modem "remotely"?
If you have any suggestion, please cc to gayleard at eircom.net .
I can read email when I have logged into my server,
but it is very painful.
[I'm able to re-direct some of my email to Italy,
but it would be nicest if I could get it from my dovecot IMAP server.
As always, all suggestions gratefully received.
