jini lookup service - fire wall

Sun's reggie lookup service requires an HTTP server. However, my company does not allow access to HTTP servers with specified port numbers. Does this mean that I cannot use reggie, and hence Jini? Is there any way around this?

I see that there is public lookup service running on http://www.jini.canberra.edu.au. Can (How do) I use this lookup service without specifying a port number?

Is it true that the purpose of having the HTTP server is that clients can download some class files from the server? If so, will an FTP server work? or just a simple customized server?

For Deployment you need the webserver that is available to outside. But for development you can use sun's webserver comes with jini on your local m/c.
Ftp maynot work as it needs authentication
But i belive RMI uses FTP internally.
Perheps TFTP ( does not need any authentication ) may work.

I tried running the tftp server. I listed all the active ports that are listening. Every time I start the tftp server, there are 2 additional ports listening:

IP:69
IP:34265 (e.g., number varies every time server starts.)

Which one is the port the server listens on?
If the port number varies, how do I (can I still) use Jini services?
