Does the Mac Server block outbound traffic by default? I ask cause I am trying to set up a RSS VPN connection that uses certain TCP and UDP ports that are not listed in the Services section in the Firewall. Once I create the specific ports and enable them, do I need to add them in the advanced section? My problem is that the RSS program is based on a Windows 2k machine and will connect thru the Mac server to an outside Server for the authentication. It seems that it is not getting thru the firewall even tho we do not specifically block any outbound traffic. Which is why I ask if the server blocks by default unless specifically opened.

Any suggestions on this will be greatly appreciated.
