my company has a central server with a number of client computers that use a vpn to connect remotely. To use the vpn on another company's wireless network, they need to open the port that my vpn requires to work. How can i figure out what port this vpn is using?

Check the VPN configuration settings on you VPN device or you can use the simple DOS command "netstat -a", without the quotes.

In l2tp example above tcp port 1721 needs to be include
The example referenced in the encompassing set of information deals with l2tp over IPSec.
Openvpn uses tcp port 1194 by default but can b configured to use any port.
