Hi Tamir,

There's nothing special you need to do to configure your firewall to=20
allow external users to manage the site.  Just allow access to the host=20
on which Zope is running to be accessed on the TCP port that Zope uses=20
for HTTP (typically 8080 in the default install).  The only difference=20
between "normal" Zope access and "management" Zope access is the=20
credentials presented to Zope by the user's browser; perhaps when he=20
visits a URL on your Zope ending in "/manage" (there is no separate=20
"management" port or app or anything).

For more detailed explanations, a much better list to post to is the=20
zope@zope.org maillist (see http://www.zope.org/Resources/MailingLists).
