Search the archives for "Network Flow Diagrams" and you will find 
a list of most of the ports used by the AG software.  Chris Osland 
<C.D.Osland at rl.ac.uk> is maintaining the document.

The short answer is that vic and rat use pairs of ports for 
control and data and some rooms use ports as low as 12000 
according to the vv.dat file included with the QuickBridge software.
