What ports need to be open on a firewall to allow cvsup?

For a stateful firewall:
allow tcp from my-server to outside-mirror cvsup setup keep-state

Non stateful firewall:
allow tcp from any to any established
allow tcp from my-server to outside-cvsmirrror cvsup setup

The port number for cvsup according to /etc/services is 5999(tcp)

Hope it helps

The company I work for is implementing a new firewall, and there is some
posibilty I might be able to get the apropriate ports to cvsup my
machines open.

Assuming pasive mode cvsup, what ports would I need open?
