With newer Linux kernels only root has the permission to access
/dev/port or use inb/outb. So you must start the frontends as root or
set them to suid root (not recommended).

In principle, using the net backend for this is possible (if it's
started by root). There seem to be a bug in the net backend that
results in segmentation faults if it's used on localhost. For me
increasing the DEBUG level decreases the chance of segfaults.
