Hi Zen, I just want to point out that the port scanners being run by
malicious entities on the internet are going to detect your open ports
whether your Koha URLs use/display them or not. In fact, the port
scanners are possibly unaware of your URLs or domain name; they're not

The important thing is to secure your internet-facing servers and
services so that there is nothing that potential attackers can use to
invade or break your system.
