    1313The Port Range technique is a simple approach that makes the deployment of parallel environments firewall friendly. Most of the existing parallel environments use random ports by default to listen for incoming TCP/IP traffic. This makes cross-domain application execution almost impossible as most of system administrators often forbid to open all inbound ports to the Internet due to security reasons. By forcing the parallel environments to use only predefined, unprivileged range of ports, it is much easier for administrators to configure the firewall in a way to allow incoming MPI and !ProActive traffic without exposing critical system services to the Internet. Basing on the first presented figure, each of the site administrators has to choose a range of ports to be used (e.g. 5000-5100) for the parallel communication and configure the firewall appropriately. One should note that the port range technique solves the problem of the cross-cluster connectivity for computing clusters where all worker nodes have public IP addresses.
