I have a question relating to a DCOM client connection to a server.
The scenario is as follows. The server is behind a firewall. The server brokers a connection using port 135.
The firewall configuration allows all ports out to be open, but only selected incoming ports. Incoming port 135 has been configured to be open on the firewall. The client connects to the server via a random port. With the above configuration, the client is unable to connect through the firewall.
Is there a way of configuring the port that the client uses to stop it connecting via a random port?? I would like to configure the client to use 1 (or a small range) of ports only.
any advice would be much appreciated
