[arm-allstar] Address to use SuperMon away from home network

A few points....

  Supermon and allmon are http  applications and for them  to work
externally requires that port 80 tcp be forwarded in your router. Some
providers do not allow outgoing port 80 from their customers although this
is much less common than it use to be. If that is the case the http port
can be changed in the apache configuration.

In order to reach your system from a remote location you need to use the
public IP address assigned to you by your provider. This is most often a
dynamic address meaning it can change. You could check it using your
allstar with a command  - dns-query <yournode>  The problem is is could
change. The answer is to use a free Dyndns so that you address your home
system by a domain name rather than an IP address. This domain name is then
converted to an IP address which follows any changes that might happen to

All that being said be aware that the current allmon and supermon programs
of any version are extremely insecure. It is very simple for a hacker to
get into your system and your network if you open up ports to either of
these programs. We are working on a fix for that and it should be out in an
update very soon. Until then I would NOT recommend  opening your system to
remote allmon or supermon.
