iptables and webcam

I'm trying to stick to a default iptables policy of blocking and the opening for whaever's needed. However, I'm having difficulty figuring out what exact port/protocol to open for services such as (ahem). I can only connect if I change the default policy to accept and flush the rules.

So my question is: Is there some way to query the connection that is trying to get established so that I can see what port needs to be opened?

Or run wireshark to see which port your can tries to use.
