Greetings,

   Thanks for the suggestions about security on a home server. I see 
that one thing people do is use non-standard ports.
I have done that myself, but get the feeling that it's just security 
through obfuscation and does nothing more than put a little hurdle in 
the way of a cracker, and increases complexity. So what do you think: is 
this worthwhile as a security measure?

Thanks,

Frank Huddleston
