Subject Re: Setting the Port for a jmeter remote server for communication through a firewall
Date Sat, 06 Aug 2005 17:26:20 GMT
JMeter uses RMI to communicate between client and server.

The standard RMI port number is 1099.
But whether that alone is sufficient, I don't know.

If by connectivity you mean bandwidth, then it is likely that using
JMeter in client-server mode will also hit the connection hard.

Might be better to copy the TestPlan(s) to the remote host, and then
run JMeter in non-GUI mode. No need then to mess with firewall
