The Question is:
TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS 5.4
I want to support both active and passive FTP connections to the TCPIP Services
FTP server on my AlphaServer. However, the server is on a host behind a NAT
firewall and I only want to open those ports which the server will select from
when it informs the
client where to make its data connection to.
I've checked the TCPIP Services management manual but can find no documentation
of which port range the server selects from. If you, dear Wizard, could
publish that range I would be most grateful :=)
Also, I'm aware of other FTP server products which can be configured to use a
specific passive port range. If there are plans to include such capability in
the TCPIP Services FTP server it would be most welcome. If not, please
consider this a feature re
The Answer is :
There is presently no documentation and no management of the port.
An enhancement suggestion has been passed to the TCP/IP Services
Engineering team. If you require this feature be added and details
of potential schedule(s), please contact the support center directly.
