Adapter settings to access systems outside a fire wall

Hi All
Is there a way to configure adapters that connect to hosts behind a firewall? For example, I need to configure a JDBC adapter in our offshore environment, to access a database that is behind a onsite corporate firewall.

Thanks in advance

In general, the problem is not configuration of the adapter. You will need get your system person to configure the firewall to allow the incoming connection from a specific IP address. The adapter might need to supply additional authentication information to the firewall, but that depends on the firewall and the companies security policies.
