This is what their docs say about ports: "IB accepts connections on port 4000
from inbound traffic from ports 1024 or higher. This is required for connection
to our servers. If you are using a firewall, these ports will need to be
provided for within its configuration."
I interpreted this to mean that my iptables rules will be ok if I allow
everything outbound from the gateway, and allow all inbound packets on
established connections through.
If I use port 4000 for probing the connection to the IB broker, using ping, I
don't think it's going to provide much info - is that what you're telling me?
