Gateway to endpoints - high ports

Gateway to endpoints - high ports

Gateway to endpoints - high ports

Is there any way to limit the Gateway form using high ports talking to the endpoints? We have a firewall in-between, and our DMZ structure is such tat it's not worth deploying a gateway proxy or managed node/gateway in the DMZ.

The firewall document seems to only talk about limiting the ports to a specific range for a TMR, not much is said about the gateway.

Thanks in advance.

RE: Gateway to endpoints - high ports

You can only limit the communications ports between managed nodes and not between Endpoints and Gateways.

If you want to tie down the port range through the Firewall then you need a gateway in the DMZ.
You can then run


odadmin set_port_range {range}
command to restrict the inter-managed node comms ports.
