Actually I do see what's going on. They move httpd to port 81, then
start pixelserv on 80.
The iptable must be an attempt to discriminate between deliberate
pixelserv requests and normal web gui ones.
Which almost makes sense as the browser will be trying to request from
port 80...if it wasn't for the fact that pixelserv is bound to a
distinct IP address.

So....why not just leave iptables alone?
Ho hum.
