need to sync windows ldap to external 3rd party provider

Hi, I'm setting up a 3rd party spam filter (offsite) and there is an option to sync the users via ldap.
They have given me there public ip address. with which I will open the relivant port and only allow this IP to use it.
What I don't know is what port I need to open and what I need to do on the windows 2008 AD to make an external sync work

the server is windows 2011 sbs

LDAP runs on port 389. You shouldn't have to do anything on your AD to make it work unless you want to encrypt the traffic (Highly recommended). I would also recommend that you install an ADLDS instance on another server that syncs with your AD and open up *that* to the Internet. This will ensure that only the necessary information (usernames and email addresses) are shared with your partner.
