ports need open for RSM?

I have just installed business copy.
The RSm needs to speak to the host agents and bvice versa. Does anyone know where the ports that are required for this to work are documented?

These are on different vlans and so have to be added to router access lists.

Right now its fairly clear that the coreect portsd are not open. For example, I can add an 'enabled host' to the RSM, but it never contacts the host.
The host appears unable to contact the agent.
Pretty sure things are being blocked between the two.

The agent log has things like
$#$==> 1 2005.11.07 at 07:35:53.817 2005.11.07 at 07:35:53.817 -1 err

Other log entries: (HostAgentErr.log)

Re: ports need open for RSM?

The release notes say:
""A firewall between the replication manager server and an enabled host is not supported. The server and host agent cannot communicate across the firewall.
A firewall between a browsing computer and the replication manager server is supported. You can browse to the replication manager through a VPN tunnel.""

A quick browse through some manuals did not reveal about any details which ports are used.
