What Firewall ports are required for Container fields?

I have a database that displays PDFs from container fields in a Global container field.  When the Firewall is turned on my local/internal Mac Mini development server,  the Global field does not display the PDF.  If I turn off the Firewall the script works correctly and the PDF is displayed.

 

The script is simple.

Set Field[ GlobalContainer ; SourceContainter ]

Open Floating document Window

GoTo Layout

refresh screen

 

When run through the debugger there are no errors.

 

If I run the script with the FireWall on the field/screen is blank.  If Turn off the Firewall and click the refresh window  menu item in the records window the PDF appears.  So it appears that the Firewall is blocking the display of the PDF data.

 

The Production server is behind a commercial firewall and is exhibiting the same problem.   It's internal Firewall is off.  So in theory we just have to open the correct ports on the Firewall and the PDF should display.  In theory,  we already have ports 80,443,5003, 2399 and 16000 - 16002 open.  Did we miss one or is there something else going on?
