This method (minus the dns server) is what I'm doing now. And you 
are correct, I want to use similar ports on multiple machines. For 
the time being, Xinetd's ability to translate port numbers to another 
machine (ie. bstar port 58 forwards to winmachine as port 80, 
leaving port 80 free for bstar) works, but will eventually become 
amazingly cumbersome.

I own a domain name and Dyndns will act as domain name servers. 
Maybe that's the way to go.
