Using FreeBSD as a reference point, the port, when it installs, allows you to
enable two methods of reporting: monthly (out of periodic) and on reboot ... so
that covers the 4 that aren't up 24/7 ...
Next, the reporting is not based on your IP ... in fact, to try and address
security concerns, we do not store any information such as IP or hostname ...
when you run the stats the first time, it generates a distinct key that is used
for reporting and is stored on your host for future reporting to identify you
Finally, for those dealing with firewalls, the script was written to make use
of a PROXY server for reporting, so that no holes have to be opened up for an
individual host to connect to the rver ...
