What ports do i need to unblock on client and server (running msvsmon.exe)
to debug remotely from my client box with visual studio 2005 pro?

When I attach to remote process a connection shows up in msvsmon.exe on the
remote machine, however, the client box with visual studio displays error:

"Unable to connect to the mricosoft visual studio remtoe debugging monitor
named 'the box name' the micorosft visual studio remote debugging monitor on
teh remote cmopuer cannot connect to teh local computer. a firewall may be
preventiong communication via dcom to the local computer. please see help
for assistance."

Each time i try to connect with visual studio, another connection shows up
on the remote machine's running msvsmon.exe app but i get this same error:

"Unable to connect to the mricosoft visual studio remtoe debugging monitor
named 'the box name' the micorosft visual studio remote debugging monitor on
teh remote cmopuer cannot connect to teh local computer. a firewall may be
preventiong communication via dcom to the local computer. please see help
for assistance."
does msvsmon.exe use more then one port? what all ports or port ranges does
the server running msvsmon.exe need unblocked?
does msvsmon.exe connect back to the client on new port? if so what ports
does the client (running visual studio) need unblocked?
