I don't know if this has changed for FC4 but for FC3 if you edit the
'etc/sysconfig/iptables' file, on the 2nd last line is a line something
like

"-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -j REJECT --reject-with icmp-host-prohibited"

if you insert on the previous line 

"-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -j LOG"

You will get what is being blocked by the firewall in you 'messages'
log, this should help you figure out what ports need to be allowed
though.
