firewall/DMZ config: ODBC random port numbers

Opening up ports for my DMZ server to talk to a database service ( sybase sql anywhere 7) running on port 49153.  I open up port 49153 both ways and I still can't get the ODBC to connect... if I open the DMZ to the LAN, i connect fine... here's my netstat -a below... looks like the DMZ server (slim) uses a random port 3201 and up??  can i set this statically?

Proto     Local Address            Foreign Address              State
TCP       slim:3201                 Bigdaddy:49153               Time_Wait
TCP       slim:3203                 Bigdaddy:49153               Time_Wait
TCP       slim:3205                 Bigdaddy:49153               Time_Wait

i.g. no 'cause the outgoing port number is choosen by the tcp/ip stack, the application has no control over this
