What does it mean "direct access ports"
|Most of the servers are port forwarded as it is described in http://www.polarhome.com/service/shell/ports.html
... it means that they are behind the gateway server, particulary gate.polarhome.com. To achieve equal port distribution on each server, polarhome uses "open direct access port ranges" that allows direct access from the internet to servers. From servers are no limitations.
You run an eggdropp process on redhat box. To be able to access/manage your eggdrop from the Internet, you have to choose one free port in given range (for redhat server 5000-9999).
If you would decide to use some other port that is not in the direct access range. Your bot will work correctly, but you will not be able to manage from the Internet - just from servers inside of polarhome.com realm.
