3050/tcp. however, unless you do not value your data or the
security of you server machine, I would VERY STRONGLY suggest
that you find another way. Use a VPN, or port forwarding
with SSH. If you absoulutly cannot do this, at the very least
use your firewall to restrict 3050 to only IP addresses which
you want to allow.
