Yes.  I tried to mitigate it a bit by adding avahi announcement to the
server, to make it easier for those listening on the avahi broadcast to
figure out which IP address the Freedombox got.  But it is a hard
problem, finding a machine with an unknown IP address.

Enabling Avahi have its own set of security issues, but it seem the
least bad solution to try to find out what IP address the Freedombox
