Is there any way to open a range of ports with one definition? I need to publish a server and allow connections from the outside on a range of 1000 contiguous ports. I have tried creating a protocol definition with the first port as primary and the rest 999 as secondary but it does not work. Creating 5 individual protocol defs and 5 individual SPRs works but only allows 4 simultaneous connections. This server is running a complex application. The external clients always initiate the connection on one fixed port. The server application sends back to the client a random reply port within a predefined range of 999 ports (it's kind like RPC). To make matters worse we are currently hosting 3 of these servers for 3 different customers and more are on the way... There is just got to be a way to do this without having to create 1000s of protocol defs and 1000s of SPRs!!!!
