I discovered the exact combination below after much trial and error....I wish I would have searched for this solution first as I would have been enjoying it longer :) Although I do something extra that may help some others. My Internet connection is Firewalled, and the only way in is via ssh. I use ConnectBot(free on Market) to setup port forwarding on both CLI and Web ports on my Droid2. Then A Online Radio and SqueezeControl are both simply pointed to localhost on the phone (127.0.0.1). These IPs never have to change, and DynDNS takes care of ssh resolution to my dynamic host IP at home.

It all works well both over EvDO and WiFi, but of course requires the added step of securing the tunnel first with my password. This takes about 10 seconds. The only drawback is that if I get a phone call -- and am connecting via EvDO, the network connection is dropped, ssh session is closed and everything has to be restarted. That is until this issue of simultaneous WLAN/phone use is fixed (if it ever is on this phone). But I will not expose my server to the Internet directly, so this is a good compromise.

Hope this helps some other folks with ssh/firewalls.
