|I think you only need open ports 80 (http) and 443 (https).
I suppose you have a software firewall because if it is a hardware firewall (embeded in a router) you don`t need open any port at all because hardware firewalls redirect the incoming traffic corresponding to request done from the LAN (local LAN opposed to WAN/Internet).
I mean, if you initiates a request from your computer/LAN to the WAN/Internet, the incoming packet received by a hardware router/firewall will be forwarded to the corresponding port.
I`m not sure if you must configure any special for Offline Explorer Pro, because it uses the same ports, protocols and packets than your browser.

|If you use OE`s internal HTTP server (Options->Internet->Connection), and your firewall filters local traffic as well, you`ll need to open the port used by it (defaults to 800, although this can be changed on the OE Options dialog).
