[mythtv-users] Can't access 6544 over port forward

Thanks, Peter.

This is how I connect to do MythTV Player development while I'm on the
road.  Local forwards over ssh are not reliable from the hotels I've found.
I will look into securing that port, or change it to a random one but
forward it internally to 6544.
