The program _can_ work via telnet, but it defaults to communicate via
port 2056. In the config you can do "8. Network comm mode" and set it
to "mode 2. I can communicate freely on the telnet ports."
Then the firewall will let you through (if the firewall accepts
telnet-ports, which I think/hope it does. If not, you could always
try the HTTP port (mode 4)..)

Succes, Ivo
