Hi All,

I am currently using slurpd replication where the slave and the master
are in different subnets, only network traffic from the master to the
slave being allowed.

I am considering replacing slurpd replication with syncrepl when
migrating from OL 2.2.x to OL 2.3.x.

According to the syncrepl documentation syncrepl uses a
consumer-initiated protocol. Does it mean that network traffic from the
consumer to provider needs to be allowed?

Yes, absolutely.
