Allow different port ranges for each destination in ClearCase MultiSite

We want to be able to use a single “proxy” host for CCMS routing but have different port ranges for each destination. In other words, to support a route line like below with a “proxy” host and 3 destination hosts but the host proxy can be configured such that it uses one port range for dest1, another range for dest2 and another for dest3.

ROUTE proxy dest1 dest2 dest3

Multiple ports are required for throughput.
Currently MS allows specifying a single port range, but this is inclusive for all connections to all sites. It is required that firewalls have ports open to only individual sites, and not all sites inclusively. Each site requires a specific range of exclusive ports.
