In response to various queries and comments, I have added an explanation to the FAQ on on open ports vs shaping.
The services themselves are not shaped. However, as explained, we close incoming ports by default for security - they can be opened per user on request. Once open, there should be no problem connecting to an incoming port via NeoConnect, since it's purely a layer 2 device. Of course, you do need to make sure that the ports aren't blocked somewhere else, such as in your computer's firewall.
