I don't use limewire, but for other p2p I define pf macros that list the
udp and tcp ports and and explicity allow incoming connections.

If you want to know what ports an application is listening on try
sockstat -l. I wouldn't expose them without tracking down what they do
though in case they are http, telnet, etc.
