The EPMD port is necessary but not sufficient. From the details provided
in your previous email you would have needed to open port 57641 also.
This is a random port. Do you see packets on this port in your network

I would suggest temporarily eliminating the firewall entirely for
debugging purposes. See the firewall section on the clustering page for
configuration details:
