    139  These files are usually provided by the CA, particularly [[!QosCosGrid|CA]] or [[http://www.man.poznan.pl/plgrid-ca/|PL-Grid]] does provides these files. Typically, CA configuration files are placed in `/etc/grid-security/certificates/` directory with additional extension `.CA_hash_name` and only appropriate symbolic links are created in `/etc/grid-security/`. Globus Toolkit provides `grid-default-ca` command which can be used to automatically create appropriate links.

    162 Detailed information on GT firewall issues can be found at http://www.globus.org/toolkit/security/firewalls/. This paragraph only lists the minimum required firewall configuration and gives a short overview of the basic issues. To enable remote access to Globus Toolkit services the following TCP port should be opened for the incoming connections: 
    163 *static port: 2811 for main GridFTP daemon port 
    164 *ephemeral TCP ports: various Globus services require an arbitrary chosen TCP port range. It is controllable by environmental variable GLOBUS_TCP_PORT_RANGE for pre-ws components. Make sure it is defined in daemons environment (i.e. put it in (x)inetd configuration entries)
