Telnet to and from Cell Server and Client 5555 but

To all,

I have a client installed on a NT 2000 machine. I can connect to 2 other Cell servers that we have running OB 3.0 and 3.1, but I cannot connect to one. I can telnet to port 5555 from both sides. When I try to connect from the client to the Cell Server I get this error:

Description:

One of the OmniBack clients tried to connect to the Cell Manager but the connection failed.

Actions:

Check if the Cell Manager host is up and running. Check if it is accessible on
the network (use ping command). If not, check the configuration of
network services and routing (use nslookup command).

I can ping the Cell server, I have it in the WinntSystem32driversetchosts file.


The /etc/services file looks fine

omni 5555/tcp #OMNIBACK II


What else can I look at?

Is there a firewall between these two systems?

name resolution using NSLOOKUP
Omniback and NT problems? double check name resolution, DNS/HOSTS...

Yes there is a firewall between the two systems and I just got the 5555 port open between them. Obviously this is not the only port I need opened. As I was looking at netstat -an, I saw other ports opening up.
Is there a range of ports that needs to be opened on these boxes that the client on an NT machine can connect to the Cell Server of an HP machine using the GUI interface?
