It would make life simpler for remotees if the port numbering scheme
was changed in two areas:
o All machines in the farm use a global port sequence:
pear : ports 5000 - 5002
bhaji : ports 5003 - 5005
ninja : ports 5006 - 5007
Or something similar. That way remotees can put in static tunnel
rules for the test farm machines, which is necessary as we can no
longer access the machines directly by non-reserved IP addresses.
o Similar, instead of the server returning some (seemingly
random) port number in the 30xxx range, it should also return
static predefined ports as they did at some time in the past
(i.e., 5xxx results in a server connection at 8xxx)
Would that be much hassle? Or would it be pointless given that
eventually the machines will have to be public in order to support
customers connecting to them?!?
In any event, remotees now have to copy binaries to UK and run rgdb
from there. It's rather painful!
