Implement "Server is listening" check on client startup Automatically open firewall port w/ .deb using "dfw" - see UbuntuFirewall Register a list of custom scripts Use the MediaController widget with a custom implementation of MediaController.MediaPlayerControl, remote-linked to the server] Remote touchpad
