Hi,

Notwithstanding the advice not do do this I sometimes see situations 
where excessive use of firewalls makes this necessary.

The solution is to open up port 4369, and then select and open a range 
of ports for node to node connections with the kernel parameters 
inet_dist_listen_min and inet_dist_listen_max.
