I have been playing around with setting up a remote connection to my SlimServer and anxious about leaving ports 9000 and 3483 open to the internet. Having access to my music anywhere I travel is pretty appealing, but not at the expense of opening my LAN to security problems.

Can anyone provide any thoughts about keeping these ports open to the internet?

Are there any special measures anyone can recommend if you do leave these ports open all the time?

As a starting point:

....and then search the forums for vpn, hamachi or tunneling. I'm using the
latter (tunnel those ports over SSH), others recommend hamachi (Windows
only?) for an easy to set up VPN solution.
