firewalls and blocked ports

Exactly which incoming ports do I need to unblock when providing a tor
server? Ever since I've started using tor as a server, I've been
getting a lot dropped packet reports from iptables (I drop any
incoming connection that doesnt have a explicit allow rule by
default). I'm wondering if I forgot something in torrc or I forgot to
unblock a port.
