That is something I can prevent if I want to.
(Have iptables block incoming SYN+ACK packets on ppp0)
Or perhaps I want some friends to be able to see this.

However, I don't think there are any operators that do this. IP 
addresses are expensive, so they surely don't want to hand them out to 
phones - almost none of the net surfing phones can run any server 
software anyway. The FR can, and perhaps you can hack it on a few 
others. The rest merely runs browsers...

To check: open one of those webpages that show you your own IP address.
Then try shh to that address. I cannot imagine this working...
