Using HttpURLConnection/Apache Http Client on particular outbound port

Hi,
    I use HttpURLConnection and Apache HttpClient in program which submits data to the web server. Whenever the http connection is established b/w client program and web server. the client uses different outbond port on client side. Is there a way for fixed outbond port. B'cos client machine is behind firewall which restricts the random outbond port used by program.
Regards,

If you don't see it in the documentation for the API, then no, you probably cannot specify the source port.  I'm guessing there might be lower-level TCP/IP APIs you could access to get this done (if this is a web applet, the security manager might be annoying (is that a problem anymore?)  I haven't written java code in over a decade), but you might end up having to re-invent the wheel (or at least become a serious code-scavenger) in order to implement HTTP protocol functionality while being able to specify a source port.

Does that help at all?

Cheers,

Dear Jon,

      You're telling its not possible to do so. Even if its possible, I might have to develope myself. I like to do, but the time doesnt permit so. If you get some idea suggest me. I have one solution, that is using proxy server at client machine. Is it correct? The server application runs on particular port, why cant it be possible for the client? If it is, pls suggest how its done.
