Hmm, I thought I had uploaded 6.0.2 for Debian stable as well. Most of
our servers are running that.

Correct, 2433 used to be for the SFTP bulk data transfers, but because
of the masquerading firewall changes clients actually are able to use
the normal rpc2 port-pair for the bulk data transfers. Masquerade was
introduced a long time ago, and has even been the default since 5.3.19
or 20.

Ok, so the SFTP data transfers must have worked as they used to, even
without the codasrv-se port.

Ehh, no that is typically because the auth2 daemon isn't running.
(port 370/udp [codaauth2])

    /etc/init.d/auth2.init start?
