I use the ports, but it drives me nuts.
The one problem I have consistently is that it uses FTP to grab the files, and FTP usually locks up. It'll download the file all the way then never close the connection - FTP just hangs.
I've had that problem with FTP on all of my computers at every physical location I've ever lived in for as long as I can remember. I think FTP just sucks or something.
