spawn

Hi

have been successfully using "*windx.utl;spawn" to do what it does .

but ...

doesn't really behave well when you are telneting in from some remote
site as firewall/routers require a specific range of IP ports.

so, decided to begin 'hacking' the '*windx.utl' program and looking at the
;SPAWN: rtne.

5030 SPAWN
...
05090 LET X=HFN; OPEN (X)"[tcp];0"; LET X$=KEF(X); CLOSE (X)
05100 LET X$=X$(POS(";"=X$)),TCP_ADDR$=X$(1,POS(";"=X$,-1)-1)
...

Basically what it does is 2 things

05150 CALL 
"[wdx]*windx.utl;Spawn_rmt",TCP_ADDR$(2),INI_FILE$,%TCP_SECURE,HIDECLIENTWINDOW 
! Spawn remote Windx

to start it on the windex  (note TCP_ADDR$)

and on the local machine (unix) it invokes a ghost (with a possible nohup)
so that it communicates on same TCP_ADD$(2).

HERE'S WHAT I NEED!

i need to limit those 'ports' to a specific "range" - ex: 10500-11000.

basically a replacment to line 5090.

any ideas?
