Feedburner gives a variety of tools for managing RSS feeds off your site as well as third-party ones. I use it for more than just trimming vbulletin posts.

as far as disabling direct access to /forum/external.php, I believe, .htaccess can take of the things. configuration:

<Files external.php>
order allow,deny
deny from all
allow from 66.150.96

I believe this is feedburner's subnet:

this is feedburner reading off my site (in the attached image).
<Files external.php>
Order Deny,Allow
Deny from all
Allow from 66.150.96

This is the right format though that's not the ip
