Hello again,

Question about ports:

Let's assume that a client sends a message to the server from some port >
1024 (set manually or assigned by the system).
Does the server respond to this port, or does it respond to port 546.

In other words, is the port 546 for ALL messages from servers and relays to
the client, or is it just for the Reconfig-Init and similar, i.e. exchanges
INITIATED by the server.
