FileMaker Server - Ports and Ports

So, can someone share their insight about the opening of ports for FileMaker Server?

 

I guess my primary question is: In Windows, what effect does the Local Port have vs the Remote Port? While I thought I understood the difference, and what needs to be set, in setting up a FileMaker Server from scratch ( actually the Dev License of Server 12 Advanced ), it wasn't working quite like I was expecting. I got it working fine, but that lead me to a wild-google-chase to find an explanation for which actually needs to be open and the effect that has on security.
