Pinned topic Firewall rules for service and productivity tools

‏2012-11-12T19:30:51Z |
We have been running RHEL6 on Power 770 LPARs for 1.5 years, but today I finally installed the IBM service and productivity tools on one of my internal test LPARs.  It was very easy, as shown below:
 
rpm -i ibm-power-repo-1.1.9-3.ppc.rpm
yum install ibm-power-managed-rhel6
yum install nmon
 
The video at http://youtu.be/oD4Ak3NqbS4 explains it all.
 
But most of my prod RHEL6 LPARs are on in a DMZ, and I suspect that communication for some of these tools require communication through the public network between the HMC and the Linux LPAR, which would in our case traverse a firewall.  Would anyone point me in the correct direction to find what ports are needed to be open and in which direction for DLPAR and LPM operations? 
 
Thanks.

    In order for DLPAR and LPM to work, port 657 upd/tcp must be open in both directions between the HMC and the lpar.  (Source: Securing the Hardware Management Console)
