This is exactly what it shows. As it is a home-made busybox environment, 
there is no firewall.

In attached file.

By investigating a little more, I found something odd :

As said before, launching vdr in the background with this command :

vdr -P"xineliboutput --local=none --remote=37890 --primary"

is problematic : no vdr-sxfe connection, sdvrpsend 6419 HELP 
gets no reply either.

However, if I start vdr and frontend together in a command like "vdr 
-P"xineliboutput --local=sxfe" svdrpsend now gets a reply, and I'm 
finally able to connect a second vdr-sxfe frontend, which is not the 
expected behaviour !
