The scenario I had in mind was rather to make his application the client 
for an external server, instead of using some external client to connect 
to someone's PC over HTTPS.  That wouldn't need an open server port on 
the client; any Comet-style protocol would work.

But at this point, only the OP knows enough about his application to be 
able to figure out if that's a usable approach.
