Or maybe we can use something like rinetd somehow for a safer solution.

Interesting idea. For example, the yacy (or i2p) webinterface could bind to<some-port> (the default, no magic). rinetd (or so) could listen on<some-port> and forward to<some-port>.


  • #research if that works
  • add to documentation
  • bonus: (Disadvantage: other workstations can connect to the service listening on A warning needs to be added. But perhaps a separate, virtual, firewalled interface could be added for that purpose.)
