R6 uses lighttpd to perform its webserver (mythweb) duties. If you (like many of us) have port 80 blocked by your ISP, you will not be able to access mythweb from outside of your network.

To change the port to something that is not blocked: edit /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf

on line 142 (or so ) you will see
Code:
#server.port     = 81

change this to
Code:
server.port       = (pick a port number)


Restart lighttpd (or reboot) and you are all set.

Dont forget to do port forwarding on your router.

Opening up http to your box is a bad idea security-wise in my opinion... better to open up sshd to the outside (running on a non-standard port) and use a secure tunnel to connect to mythweb. See this howto.
