Hi Rob -

Actually the page is still active, apparently you have to a cookie set
before it can displayed.  D*&n stupid on the part of IBM's website designers
IMNSHO.  Anyway, the applicable part of the page says ...

"For a DB2 UDB for AS/400 server, not using the secure sockets protocol, the
port should always be 446 or 447. It is recommended that the 446 always be
used for clear text transmissions, and 447 be used for IPSec (Internet
Protocol Security Protocol Transmissions)."

I recommend that unless you find that it creates a problem, that you use
different ports for your internal and external DDM files.  That being the
case, it makes more sense to use 446 for internal and 447 for external, not
just because it follows the IBM recommendation, but also because it means
that it takes special action to enable a file for external DDM.
