Be carefull with this. You need to know how ip sockets work. By default, the
server socket number is 1500, and the clients' is 1501. But this is only for the
original connection to the target machine. That is, these are listening ports
only. Let's just look at the client connecting to the server.

When the client tries to connect to the server, it will connect to the servers'
port 1500, but it will select a random port number for its outgoing call (say,
973). This port is assigned by the tcp/ip software running on the client. Once
connected, the server will fork another process with its own port number to
continue conversing with the client. If this didn't happen, then only one client
would ever be able to open a session with the server at any given time.

Clear as mud?

We need to enable certain remote client connections to an ADSM server
through a firewall.  Does anybody know what port(s) must be enabled to
allow ADSM clients to connect to the server?
