This article discusses which ports are required when adding a server to PowerRecon's inventory.
The following ports are used by PowerRecon during the inventory process:
For Linux/VMware ESX 2.5.x or earlier:
22 TCP SSH Port used when adding supported Linux servers or VMware ESX Servers
For VMware Infrastructure 3.x:
22 TCP SSH Port used
443 TCP VMware Infrastructure Web Services port
For Windows Servers:

88 TCP/UDP Kerberos
123 UDP Time
137 UDP Netbios-ns
139 TCP Netbios-ssn
389 TCP/UDP LDAP
3268 TCP LDAP to Global Catalog
135/445 TCP For DCOM/RPC communication as PowerRecon utilizes WMI when adding Windows based servers
**WMI (RPC/DCOM) may use TCP ports 135 and 445 as well as random/dynamically assigned ports above 1024.
Microsoft has published technical articles on how to limit the port range for DCOM and RPC:
