Hi Pauli,

That was our understanding as well but a site we were helping today has 
configured outbound tcpip port 7090 and assigned that to the IP range of 
the client computers but still the Z39.50 access was failing.

Will have a browse through the docs at the link you provided.

Thanks for this.
