[AG-TECH] Firewall Ports and Test Venues

Sadly, you're going to find that that document is not enough to do the job.
It omits specific prots for a number of key applicatioins, including
vic and rat.  I posted a one-page summary of port usage a couple of months
back, extracted from the longer document on the AG web site, which was recast
by another list member in the form of a Excel spreadsheet.  I've been lobbying
for us to have a COMPLETE one-page summary of all ports used -- I think it's
critical to making AG fly in the real world, where we often have to deal with
very strict and anxious network security managers.  We still have no way of
handing them a sheet of paper and saying, "here are the ports we need, and
what services will be running on each of them".

Cheers, Rick Rodgers
