You'll certainly need to send information (hostname/IP and lonHostID)  
for your new access server to lon-capa at lon-capa.org so an entry can be  
added to the hosts tables maintained on the library servers run by the  
members of the LON-CAPA Academic Consortium.  Once the centrally  
maintained tables are updated you'll be able to view resources in  
other domains when logged into your new access server.

As regards ports ... inbound and outbound traffic to port 5663 needs  
to be permitted if your new server is to able to view resources in  
other domains, and if other servers in the cluster are to be able to  
run sessions for users from your domain in cases where your server is  
temporarily overloaded.
