Well i cant seem to find a good answer, or maybe I'm not reading closely so
ill post here.  Heres the situation:

I have a currently up and running mythbackend and multiple frontends on my
local network.  In my house, my roomate upstairs has his network setup, and
i have another setup.  I would like to have a frontend on his network
connect to one on mine.

The network is split like this:  We have a 2wire DSL modem/router serving 2
internal 172.*.*.* addys to each of our routers(I have a dlink and he has a
Linksys).  Now am i correct to assume that with the proper port forwarding
on the dlink, the frontend on his network can point to my routers 172.*.*.*
address and connect to my backend?  If this is true, what ports do i need
open?  I know 6543 (i think lol im not at home) needs to be open, and
someone said something about mysql port, which i havnt found.

I have talked to him about one of us losing a network and going with a
switch instead, but neither of us feels like giving up out personal networks
if the above thinkin is correct.  So i put it out there to you!  Will this
work or should i be thinkin of migrating to one network?


Christianity: The belief that some cosmic Jewish Zombie can make you live
forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him that
you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul
that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking
snake to eat from a magical tree. Makes perfect sense!
