how do find out what ports iPads use for various things

Hi, I have 1100 iPad 2's and I connect to the internet on them through a third party proxy (provided by the county - its not optional) and they will unblock ports for me, but I have to tell them specifically what ones and what it will be connecting to on the 'other side' so to speak, which is fine, but I have given the easily findable ones from the internet, and yet things like updating over the air don't work.
Does anyone know a conclusive place I can find the ports and what they connect to for things like the over the air updates, or how to discover them? I am also having issues with some apps like cloudon and the like, so being able to discover the information myself would be handy.
Currently I have tried setting up an ad-hoc network and using wireshark, but even then we have not been able to tie down exactly what is causing them not to update - with that many devices, you can imagine that being able to update over the air would be a big help.
