Bare minimum ports open for VPN

I'm using a computer for the sole purpose of connecting to my work network via VPN. I actually connect to my work computers via a SSL GUI once connected to the VPN. In essence this computer is a thin client. What I want to know, is what are the bare minimum ports that need to be open?
