Hi,

Distributed Erlang is not really designed to be used in environment
where there are firewalls in between the nodes. You can do what you
ask in the distribution protocol[1] and possibly setup epmd[2] to
detect nodes thorugh firewalls but most people (that I know of) give
up at this point and switch to an application specific carrier like
http and use that for inter-node communication.
