Implement Firewall Navigation

To implement firewall navigation in IBM® Connect:Direct®:

  1. Coordinate IP address and associated source port assignment with your local firewall administrator before updating the firewall navigation record in the initialization parameters file.
  2. Add the following parameters to the IBM Connect:Direct initialization parameters file as needed, based on whether you are using TCP or UDT:
    • tcp.src.ports
    • tcp.src.ports.list.iterations
    • udp.src.ports
    • udp.src.ports.list.iterations
  3. Coordinate the specified port numbers with the firewall administrator at the remote site.
