I also have port 9095 open. Port 9000 should only be required if you
want to use the web interface to the server.

What's that one for? Never seen it.

No, you'll need it for streaming, too.

BTW: this topic has been discussed many times before. And it most often
ended in "don't do it. install SSH". Which is the right way to go. Your
slimserver will be opened up to the world, and it's definitely _not_
designed with security in mind.
