      Sorry for some delay due to the holiday time off.

      Basically, the IDV in each machine need to talk to three major severs: 
TDS, ADDE, and RAMADDA, in order to perform the 98% of its features. ADDE is in 
port 112, should be no problem according to your information. You should be 
able to connect to satellite images server, and all Observations server. The 
TDS server is on port 8080, which covers the radar server and most catalogs 
from unidata. However, some catalogs like this 
(http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/georesources/idvcatalog.xml) is on port 80, but 
the content of this catalog is on port 8080, you should be able to visit: 
http://motherlode.ucar.edu/thredds/catalog.xml. But the RAMADDA server of 
unidata is on port 80, so this will be the only major thing your users going to 
miss, unless you can config the proxy setting to open 80 to some specific
