Red5 video over the internet

Openfire 3.5.2 (Red Hat), Spark 2.6.0, Red5 plugin 0.0.27


I have Red5 audio / video working fine on the internal network (no SparkWeb or SIP phone, just the standard plugin and the Java Spark client).


I have now installed a Connection Manager on the DMZ and opened 5222 to the internet so that IM works from the internet - all good so far.


Question - can I get Red5 audio / video to work in this configuration, and if so which ports do I need to open? The HTTP binding ports are standard 7070 / 7443 - I would prefer secure for obvious reasons. Can I just open these ports on the firewall to the Connection Manager and expect it to handle the traffic? Our network policy is to disallow port forwarding, so I have to use a host in the DMZ to handle the traffic somehow.


If not, is there another way that anyone can suggest? Unfortunately I don't have control of our firewalls - I have to request every change and so I'd like to be as sure as possible it's going to work before putting in requests..
