S2S send and receive port clarification

Hi All,

In an S2S configuration, I see that the port on the Openfire server is 5269.

To permit access through the network, then inbound traffic destined for that port must be permitted.


Is the inbound traffic also sourced on the same port 5259 or is it like a client accessing a Web server, where the source port is any non-reserved ports and the destination port is 80?

That is, does serverA send traffic from its 5269 port to serverB’s listening port 5259 and vice versa.
