No ports need to be exposed. Hop is not P2P based so all inbound ports may be closed.
Currently Bonders must be allowed by the Hop Bridge smart contract governed by the Hop team. We are working on decentralizing the Bonder role completely and eventually bonders will be admitted by governance. Reach out to the Hop team on discord if you are interested on becoming a Bonder.
