Hello,
  We need to setup a Perforce client which can access the Perforce server wherein the Perforce server is behind a firewall. The Perforce client is from an outside network.

We have the services running on port 1666 on the server. Apart from port 1666, what other TCP/UDP ports need to be opened on the firewall? Does anyone have an idea on this or can point me to some useful link for the same?

Thanks,
Jayanth

However, this is not encrypted so it would not be safe to open this port
to the Internet
as the passwords and data would be visible.

Please read the info:  http://tinyurl.com/6fzcl22

Generally outside access would ONLY allowed over an encrypted SSH
tunnel,  VPN,  or similar.
OpenVPN would allow other services in addition to Perforce to be
available if required.

Lee,
  Thanks for your help. We opened TCP port 1666 outgoing from clients to P4 server and all dynamic ports from P4 Server to clients. This enabled communication through the firewall.

Regards,
Jayanth
