Changes to Alltel's Data Service Firewall
Recently Alltel relaxed its policies on inbound initiated connections from the Internet to devices on its cellular data network. In the past, Alltel restricted most access to devices and required users to request access to specific TCP or UDP ports from specific Internet IP addresses on a case-by-case basis. Alltel customers can now request that their accounts be "opened" so that any Internet address can access any TCP or UDP port on the LAN-Cell. Customers should contact their Alltel Data Solutions Field Engineer to request an updated "site survey". If you do not know your Alltel Data Solutions Field Engineer, contact Alltel Data Support at 866-574-2376 to determine the engineer assigned to your account.
