the usual ports are used. nothing out of the ordinary.

kolab doesn't touch the firewall.

yes. it works, though it's a little heavy both UI-wise and resource-wise. you 
need to really up the maximum memory usage for PHP if you want to use it. 
andy (aka akopciuch) has a really nice horde installation script that he's 
releasing this week (GPL no less). i'd recommend using that. it eases the 
process 110%

AFAIK it can run on a separate machine just fine. though i usually run it on 
the same machine.
