This actually may no longer be an issue, but in general, the problem is that we will have nodes reach out to the server and the server records the correct return address. If they're on the same local network as the server, the port may not actually be correct.
however, some changes we've made over the past few releases may resolve this
it's just always safer to have a dedicated, reliable place for the server to live
