Hello Hilal, I am a little confused here. It is the application which opens
a socket to respond to a request recieved from a client. . You can configure
your f/w to allow connections on certain ports, as well depending on the
granularity offered by your firewall, which I believe is what your getting
at here. Secondly I don't understand what you mean by trusted vs. untrusted
ports? Can you elaborate further please. Thirdly all applications to my
knowledge use the client server model of communication.
