From what I've dug up for my home firewall, they're TCP ports 80 and 7000 to 8000 to the destionations 208.95.184.0-208.95.187.255

You do not need to open any inbound ports for the game to work.

As true as that is, I think some people (not sure about the OP though), might be interested in the outbound (destination) ports too.

I for once needed this info and had to pretty much "guess" the numbers (see my previous post) in order to configure the traffic shaper on my router to prioritize STO traffic. Many people playing on shared ADSL or slow (<1mbps) upload connections need to do it if they want to have decent latencies (p2p & torrents junkie roommates ftl).

The better solution for that problem involves a crowbar and a flamethrower ;-) (but the server-side port range is 7000-7500)
