Festive greetings to you all!

I am keen to remotely stream my music collection from work using
softsqueeze. How much of a risk am I taking by opening up ports on my
home firewall to do this? I presume I will need to open the same ports
at work - right? Oh, and which ports ;-) ...?

Can someone give me an ssh (?) 101 course or point me in the direction
of a non-uber techie website that could help me get a grip on how it
works?

Thanks!

You can take a look at this page that I put together with Richard with
the basics of using ssh and softsqueeze:

http://softsqueeze.sourceforge.net/ssh.html

If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
