Right, this is quite a disadvantage.

Yes, if there are processes listening which should not be reachable from
the outside. These processes will need some authentication mechanism.

But, on the other hand, httpGate will only tunnel HTTP-GET and -POST

Or, to be correct: It should! There is still a (meanwhile obsolete)
mechanism to tunnel arbitrary (binary) requests, via the "@<port>"
syntax. This is a feature (which in fact was never used) of the old Java
applet API. I will better remove it for the next release.
