Firewall Navigation

Firewall navigation enables controlled access to an IBM® Connect:Direct® system running behind a packet-filtering firewall without compromising your security policies or those of your trading partners. You control this access by assigning a specific TCP source port number or a range of source port numbers with a specific destination address (or addresses) for IBM Connect:Direct sessions.

Before you configure source ports in the IBM Connect:Direct initialization parameters, you need to review all information regarding firewall navigation and rules, especially if you are implementing firewalls.
