[REBOL] Re: Opening Specific Ports

The port from what you are making the connection is not important for the firewall configuration, unless the firewall is braindead. What you usually tell to the firewall is "allow users to connect to these ports on these hosts". The feature you request is only important in rare cases; one of this is if you are writing an FTP server and need to support the active mode, where the server connects to the client from port 20.
