Only 61616 needs to be opened for TCP, I have dozens of setups like this.

try "telnet host.domain 61616" from the command prompt and if you get
a timeout then the firewall is not open. If you don't get a timeout
but a successful connect, ask your firewal admins if they have "smart
defense" features turned on.
