what firewall ports need to be opened before setting up a domain trust?

i will be setting up a 2 way domain trust this weekend between 2 domains
one domain has 2 sites, and 4 domain controllers (call this domain1)
the other domain has 6 sites and about 8-10 domain controllers (call this domain2) each of the DCs are paired up, and on different networks (i.e. 2 are on 10.1.1.x, 2 are on 10.1.2.x, etc)
there are firewalls between all of the sites

so my question is- what ports need to be opened, and what servers would i need to open these ports for?
do i need to open all the ports to all the domain controllers to/from domain1 and domain2? or can i just open ports to/from 2 of the domain controllers in domain2, to domain1?
im sure this is confusing

Here is the list of of ports that need to be opened for 2012 use the 2008 settings

Ports should be opened to PDEc in domain 1 to talk to PDCe in domain 2.  Also make sure name resolution works between the two domains (conditional forwarders are one way to do that)

thanks Mike
when you say PDEc, do you mean the domain controller that holds the PDC emulator role?
