Basic port setting for OS X Firewall

I'm a newbie at setting up a server and would need some help

I recently set up an OS X 10.6 server at home on my Mac Mini. All works well until I turn on the Server Firewall.

Could someone help me to identify the ports for allowing the following services:

iTunes HomeSharing (streaming and radio)
PLEX media player
Screen Sharing
Allow me to see the server in the sidebar from other computers on the network
Allow for Filesharing of folders on the server

On a security note: Is my server compromised if the Firewall is not up (e.g. can it be access through internet)? I'm using the server only at home and it connects to the internet through a Time Capsule.
