->​**Note**:​ To force usage of a specific port on the RLM server, you can do so by adding a port number ​to the ISV line in the license file. For example:\\ + 
-> HOST //your_hostname//​ //​your_hostid//  +=== Getting Through A Firewall === 
-> ISV idvinc //port=specific_port//+ 
 +You can specify ports in the license file to ensure it can get through your firewall. Modifying ​the ports in the license file doesn'​t require us to re-sign the license, so you can add/change them as needed. 
 + 
 +On the host line, you can specify the port that clients use communicate with the server 
 +> HOST //<​hostname>​ <​hostid>​ <port #>// 
 + 
 +There is also a port for the ISV itself to communicate with the main server process. This port is chosen randomly if it is not supplied. Usually, this is fine, but occasionally you do need to set this port, as well, depending on your firewall settings.
