omnirc file / configuration of OB2PORTRANGESPEC

I've configured the omnirc file in the past to lock down Data Protector ports to a range, but the range was a 'generous' one and not optimized or restricted too heavily to limited numbers

Heres an example of previous configuration -

1. Edit the omnirc file on the device you are backing up and add this line
OB2PORTRANGESPEC=xMA-NET:18501-18515;xSM:20100-20189;CRS:20190-20199
2. Stop and restart the Data Protector Inet Service
3. Edit the .omnirc file on the Cell Manager and add this line
OB2PORTRANGESPEC= xMA-NET:18501-18515;xSM:20100-20189;CRS:20190-20199
4. Stop and restart service

So it has the following port totals -
xMA-NET: 14
xSM: 88
CRS: 9

At a new client we have a similar requirement to lock down the DP ports. They are currently backing up 13 servers using file system only backup, but they wish to add another 4

Is there a more optimum/tighter range we should try to lock the ports down to, in order to back up 17 servers?
