13.5. openMosix and Firewalls

People often have questions regarding openMosix and firewalls. Amit helped me out on this matter:

from hpc/comm.c:

#define MIG_DAEMON_PORT         0x3412
#define INFO_DAEMON_PORT        0x3415
converted to decimal, they are: 4660 and 5428 resp. (convert 1234, and not 3412, 'cos of the network-host byte ordering conversions.. Read the IP/TCP/UDP RFCs for info)

the mig_daemon port is a tcp port, the info_daemon port is udp. Hence tcp/4660 and udp/5428, Matt also mentions tcp/723 somewhere.
