many corporate firewalls selectively block local traffic.

t> What ports/protocol do the events use?

taken from your firebird.conf file:

# The TCP Port Number to be used for server Event Notification
# messages. The value of 0 (Zero) means that the server will choose
# a port number randomly.
# Type: integer
#RemoteAuxPort = 0

So you can choose the port at will. If you don't set it (default), the server
will choose one, which isn't a good solution if one has a firewall to
configure. So choose a port number and tell the firewall what it is.
It should work then.
