Only on server.

Only on server

Client makes one (or two with events) outbound connections to the server
(which receives inbound connections from clients). You can control the
port for events via RemoteAuxPort setting in firebird.conf

> 2. I'm using Zebedee to make a connection between a remote client and the server. I understand that I need to set the router/hardware firewall to forward the port used by Zebedee to the server computer. But do I need to do the same with the client?

No. Zebedee client (zebedee running on client side) behaves like any
other client application (say, Firefox).
