In my opinion just windows file sharing which is on port 445 needs to be opened.

I am not sure whether its possible in windows 7 and 2008 R2 and afterward OS as Microsoft has blocked up the loop holes in order to safeguard. However if you want you can set specific port for the query by following the article

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb219447(v=vs.85).aspx

Extract of the article:-
To set up a fixed port for WMI
At the command prompt, type winmgmt -standalonehost
Stop the WMI service by typing the command net stop "Windows Management Instrumentation"
Restart the WMI service again in a new service host by typing net start "Windows Management Instrumentation"
Establish a new port number for the WMI service by typing netsh firewall add portopening TCP 24158 WMIFixedPort
