Well, the box (also) serves as my DSL gateway, as I indicated above. How
would I be able to use various desktop programs like Skype which dynamically
set up their own outgoing ports?

However, I am perfectly willing to entertain the idea that using a
(web)server as a router is a Bad Idea. However, when I set it up, it just
seemed more convenient and flexible.
