What is the purpose of an additional port?
Generally, an extra port is needed when a service external to the main game needs to communicate with the outside.
For example if a plugin needs a web interface (dymap, plan, gmod store, ...), or if a Rcon needs to communicate with the outside.

Pourquoi my application denied?
A request for an additional port may be denied for several reasons:
- An invalid or incomplete reason
- An insecure plugin that may cause security problems
- Too many ports requested
- Other internal reason
