Python solutions (more or less pre-packaged). but the "open up" part

the application "push" data to your server instead?

Either way requires an open port, otherwise there's no way to negotiate new
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
