My home network router firewall is not allowing my iphone to connect unless I set it to medium - block inbound and allow outbound.  The firewall seting is set to use maximum - block inbound, block outbound except for custome outbound rules to allow 80, 443, ......

Can someone let me know what TCP port I need to setup on my firewall to allow the iphone to connect to my home network (FIOS) going out to the internet?

Thanks.

80 (TCP)                                       v       v
443 (TCP)                                      v       v
3478 through 3497 (UDP)           v       -
5223 (TCP)                                   v       v
16384 through 16387 (UDP)       v       -
16393 through 16402 (UDP)       v       -

I do not use facetime and imessage.  All I need is to use Safari or to check my email using my home network.  What rules do I need on my firewall?

Safari uses the following ports 80, 443

Email
IMAP uses 143 and 993 (if using SSL IMAP)

POP uses 110
SMTP uses 25

Please remember, some sites use other ports for Advertising, video, etc. If you block all ports, some content may not play correctly
