Cyrus + Sieve

I must be a bit slow but It seems I can't get sieve to work properly (or 
to be more accurate... at all).

OK, I've got Cyrup IMAP working, got users and incoming and outgoing 
mail on the following config:
Ubuntu 10.04 LTS + Postfix + Cyrus IMAP.

Now, I am trying to get rules working through Cyrus and Sieve (which I 
understand is installed by default with Cyrus)

The rules will be setup from remote computers by either the admin or the 
users themselves.

I looked into the cyrus.conf file and I do have an entry for sieve. It says:
       sieve        cmd="timsieved" listen="localhost:sieve" prefork=0 

What do I have to change to get it to work, change localhost to the 
server IP or FQDN ? Open the firewall to admit connection to port 2000 ?

I also read that the sieve port has changed from 2000 to a 4xxx value. 
Where can I check what my current config is ? And what should be the 
right values ?

Thanks for the help,
