Depends on the router, but normally ALL ports are opened up and passed to the DMZ "host"

lrmoore is correct :)

Only thing to add is that if you have set any port forwarding to another ip/port, these settings remain and are not passed to the DMZ.

eg if you have port 80 set as a virtual server on another machine, then that rule will stay and port 80 would not reach the dmz.
