It depends on what functions you're using in IE
It uses port 80 for normal web traffic (but so do a lot of other applications)
It uses port 8080 for secure web traffic (but so do a lot of other applications)
It uses port 21 if you're doing FTP stuff through it (but so do a lot of other applications)
It can also be assigned other ports
In short, you can forward the ports that IE uses - but you'll find that many other applications use these ports. And forwarding these ports may end up "breaking" a lot of those apps - so tread with caution.
