I’ve got a web app that checks a mail server for incoming mail, processes it, and sends out replies. Don’t worry - it’s basically an internal system and does a lot of validity checks before sending out the reply.
Run locally in the debugger it works just great. For the POP connection it starts on one port (say 993), and i guess after the secure connection has been negotiated the port switches to something like 50212.
Running on Xojo Cloud I am having issues with the firewall ports. I start by opening the initial port for outgoing traffic (and FirewallPort.IsOpen always returns False, so I am ignoring that check for now). I guess the negotiated port # is returned on 993? Do I need to open 993 for incoming traffic to get the response? And then open a new firewall port with the negotiated port?
I haven’t been down this road before, so i would appreciate some advice…
