Firewall ports for FMPS17 on a Mac computer running OS 10.13.6?

We are an all Mac environment and are attempting to setup FileMaker Server 17 on a Mac computer running OS 10.13.6.  FMP Cloud is not an option, we are required to have an on premise server. We would like to enable the host mac's firewall since the data is considered sensitive.  Since FMPS17 runs as a service and not an application, we do not know how to specifically open ports: 5003, 16000, 16002, 80/443 needed for common functions such as client-server DB access,  Remote Admin console and File Upload access.  Is there anyone that can shed some light on how best to utilize the local firewall and open the ports needed for FMPS17 to function on the Mac platform?  Thanks for any insight!  Thanks Thalene Mallus
