Remote access problem

Dear Coral Network Adminstrator,

Recently, NASA has implemented additional security protection for accessing 
outside network tools.  My network access through my office at NASA is 
within a private network, and access to network ports above 800 has been 
blocked.  It is my understanding that Remote Coral access is through port 
1024, which is a highly secure access port here.  I'm trying to see if our 
network folks here at NASA Ames will allow access from within our private 
network.  They have a few questions they would like to be answered so they 
can address this issue.

Is port 1024 required for both outbound/inbound traffic?
Can an alternate be used?

Your help and understanding would be greatly appreciated.  My user name is 
cassell and you can find my contact information in the trailer.

Thanks so much

Alan Cassell
