Thank you to all those who relieved my anxiety about port 2208 :-)

A new question: I have the avahi daemon running. I have zero interest in
zero-conf, so I went to de-install it, only to find that seemingly every
package in Christendom depends on it and will be removed as well -
including little things like ubuntu-desktop!

It seems a waste of RAM to have it running (well, I can always stop the
daemon running) and a waste of space to have the binaries on my hard

Why is avahi so deeply embedded in everything? 

Regards, K.
