What ports need to be allowed through firewall in order to access a remote machine via UNC file share?

Our TCOM team recently rolled out a new firewall which broke UNC access with machines on our internal network trying to access servers in our DMZ via UNC.  I was going to send a request to have these ports opened back up for a limited number of machines, but I can't seem to find a solid answer that tells me which ports are needed.  Do I need to allow ports 137, 138, 139, 445?  All of them, or only some of them?  Only from source to destination or both ways? Thanks!

You will need to allow all of the ones you have listed both directions for the best results IMO.

This is kind of what I was talking about.  I've gotten a few different answers in this thread, and can't seem to find an article that says "If you want to allow UNC access between 2 networks you need these ports opened in this direction."  Thanks guys. :-)
