That could very well be the case, since 2064 is a non-standard port (that is
not http, ftp, etc)

Is there a (good) reason why you want your client at work to fetch/flush to
your personal proxy
instead of directly to one of d.net's ?

If I had the setup you are talking about, i would just use one of d.net's
proxy's, that answer http fetches/flushes.

Im not sure exactly what you mean, you would try to move your webserver away
from port 80 or what ?
