That's correct... although I suspect that some application layer filtering
is also being conducted. Again though, I do have a pretty good IP filtering
ruleset. If it aint' coming from the USA, then the packets find their way to
the bit bucket.

I assume that the issue is the port you're connecting to, not the idea that
81 is unencrypted and 445 is encrypted, right?

be configurable. I suppose I should put something in the FAQ to document
what needs to change to move the port around.
