You may choose not to allow remote connections to all of these. In a multi-node environment:

  • all nodes will need access to
    • the ldap server or servers (389) and
    • the logger server (514)
  • mta nodes will need access to lmtp on all mailbox nodes (7025)
  • mailbox nodes will need admin port access to other mailbox nodes (7071)
