This is how we do all our paging.  In my rulesets, my actions say:

 /usr/OV/bin/nvpage -h 5551234@pagerco Page Text.

It has been working for many years.  The question I now have is because,
one of my NetViews is being moved behind a firewall and I need to know what
port and protocol may have to be enabled to allow this command through.

I believe that its a TCP stream socket over port 8850, from the nvpage
command on one NetView to the nvpagerd daemon on another.

Why?  Are you thinking of trying to implement a paging server?  It's
theoretically possible but I have never seen it done in the 7 years I've
been here, so you may well be the first.

    Please respond to nv-l                                                

Would anyone be able to tell me what port and protocol the:

/usr/OV/bin/nvpage -h 9.xx.xx.xx

command uses?
