[REBOL] Re: Opening Specific Ports

From: mattsmac:hot:mail at: 11-Nov-2003 14:38

Yeah, I'm sure it's usually a better idea to not bind the ports, but here is my issue: I'm making a client software for other users. I need to somehow limit the ports that rebol will try to open on their computers so that their company firewalls can be configured to allow access over those ports. Or am I going about it the wrong way? Any networking gurus out there? ------------------------------------- Hi Matt, MM> Nope, doesn't work, but thanks anyway Gregg. Even if I explicitly define MM> the local-port (on the client side) to be 2727 let's say, it still defaults MM> to that random port number. Well, too bad we can't seem to override it, but at least they're doing what's recommended. One of the tricky things when you BIND your own port is what to do if you have multiple instances of things and such. -- Gregg _________________________________________________________________ Compare high-speed Internet plans, starting at $26.95.
