I dont even want them to get access to anything other than the MUD. I set
up a FTP site for coders to get access to my server, but have to make a
seperate firewall rule per coder's IP address (and hope no one is using a
dynamic IP addy)

does anyone know how to set up router tunneling so that certain ports can

server tunnel to the correct sealed dir, and back out on the correct port
thru the firewall set port.)
