Doing a WS install and noticing that with host based firewalls switched on we're getting some connection attempts denied. Investigation shows that the SRC_PORT is a port I have setup to allow connections 8879. It appears to be a JAX-RPC call to the remote host.

Am i able to lock down the range of ports that are used for the RPC calls? (this method is how you allow NFS to function thru firewalls)

How do other people deal with the RPC calls when they have a requirement for host based firewalls being switched on and don't want to ACCEPT ALL:ALL between WS servers?
