[PD] Netsend outgoing Port number?

Hello all,

I'm using PD within an intranet (I've got 3 computers networked using a D-Link 704 Ethernet gateway/router) and I'm having trouble using netsend and netreceive in this environment.

It looks like I need to configure the D-Link manually to allow communication on specific ports - it has a built-in firewall.  For example: I've manually configured the D-Link to allow incoming messages to Port 21 for FTP services on my server and port 80 for WWW messages, etc.

I can configure the D-Link to 'listen' on any port I want, but only if there's an outgoing message that corresponds to the incoming port.  For example, if a message goes out of PD on port 3000, then the firewall allows a response from an external computer on the same port.

The D-Link interface calls this a 'trigger'.  Hence, if PD's netsend (for TCP) uses port 200 for all outgoing message, then I can tell the D-Link to open ports 2999-49999 for incoming messages.

So the question is: Which port does [netsend] use for outgoing messages?

many thanks..
Dave Sabine
