Hi,

I'm considering opening port 9000 on my firewall to allow remote streaming,
so I can listen to music at work. How much of a security risk is this?

Cheers,

bub.

I would suspect it is a big risk. AFAIK slimserver has not been audited
from a security point of view.

I use ssh and port-forward 9000.
