I have a large number of debian/solaris hosts that i back up using amanda. With debian the compile options include the following designations
--with-tcpportrange=50000,50100
--with-udpportrange=840,860

and for solaris I mimic that configuration when I created my amanda solaris packages.

These designations make it possible for me to back up hosts that are behind a firewall. I now have some windows clients that I need to do the same for.

I have not compiled any windows applications, and don't have a cross compiler for Windows available to me. Is there any way that I can enable these two options so that I can back up these hosts behind the firewall using amanda?

Thanks for the insights.
