The ports should be automatically opened up when setting up a tunnel. Works for me. Here is a SonicWall reference for ports.

Hey John,
  I have this installed locally and it works fine.

I also need it on our AWS(Amazon)  EC2 Windows Server

That is where it is not working.

Look down this AWS FAQ page (a few screens down) for port assignments.

Also contact AWS Support Services as there may be more current information.

John's link should do the trick based on the question you're asking. However, if I remember properly, you actually have to do a VPN tunnel, not just have one system connect via VPN client (I'm assuming this is for longer term use anyway).

Here's an article to assist you:

It is IPSEC, in addition to TCP and UDP ports it uses IPSEC protocol (i.e another ID in the place where UDP and TCP is layered over IP)
