    I dont think so... but in the most firewall configurations port 80 is open for the public but if you host your webbserver on port 8080 people can have trouble reaching it. Thats the only thing that i can think of.

    I see, so that means I can't enbale firewall?

    I have activated the redirection on my dns server, so it is automatically directed to my server's port 8080. for example, www.mydomain.com:8080, now people only need to enter www.mydomain.com.

    One thing pisses me off is that China blocks all the services IPs from www.dyndns.org. so that means people in china have to enter my ip with port :8080 at the end to reach my server. gosh!
