[REBOL] Re: Rugby RIM?

Both RIM and Rugby can use port 80, or any port for that
manner. Firewall issues are just unavoidable with P2P. These
can pose a problem when:
1. Initiating a connection to a machine behind a firewall.
2. Establishing a connection to an outside machine on a
disallowed port when behind a firewall.
So either way really. Situation #2 can generally be broken by
having your server reside on port 80. If its a proxy, you will
need to use an http request in order to pass thru.
The RIM "server" code is called lookup.r in the reboltech
