Ports required for FogBUGZ

I'm setting up FogBugz to be connected to the Internet.  What is the minimum required open ports?

I'm assuming port 80 (http), 25 (smtp) and 110 (pop3).  Are there any other required ports?

If you want to access fogbugz from the internet, the only port that needs to be open is 80.

SMTP only needs to be open if you are running the SMTP server for fogbugz on the same machine, in which case it only needs to be open for localhost and no other IP.

I might be confused but if you already have a mailserver somewhere then fogbugz will be able to reach it no problem.  the opening of ports would be for incoming connections and the only incoming connection you would make on the fogbugz machine is to the web interface 80.

I managed to get the system to only have port 25 (smtp) and port 80 (http) open ... and it's working fine.  I'm using an external SMTP server, so based on your comments, I was able to also remove port 25.  Yesterday, I was not able to send mail because port 25 was closed, but maybe the server was down.  It doesn't happen often, but it does happen. :)

Well, I have moved port 80 above 1024 so it now appears that the system is listening on no ports.  This should hold me over until I get a new firewall.  Thanks.
