[gopher] Re: NT Server?

So basically I am hardcoding each selector to point to the public ip on my
router, and forwarding tcp port 70 to my server?

This is likely going to be a problem for almost any gopher server in this
situation, alas. If you have access to the source, a kludgey but workable
solution is just to hardcode the proper address in it, if your box has an
externally accessible IP.
