Ports for vCenter linked mode and SSO multi-site

I want to set up SSO multi-site for a vCenter linked-mode configuration.  The question is in regards to ports required.  The way I understand it, I need the following ports active:

TCP 7444 for SSO
TCP 389, 636, and 10111 for vCenter

My two questions are:

1 - Are these the only ports I require between sites
2 - Do these ports need to be allowed through the firewall from each site to each site?  IE: is it a full mesh requirement or is it a point to multi-point (if I had four sites would the ports only need to be open from one site to the other three or between all of them?)

Thanks,

Thanks, Andrew, that link is actually something I had bookmarked.  I seemed to overlook a few of the SSO ports you listed, though.

To finish this question out, does each site need to allow those ports inbound from every single other site (full mesh)?
