so this application virtualizaiton thing is pretty sweet, but do we need to allow or block any kinds of communications to / from clients and the APP-V servers?
 

Server-Related Protocols and External Components

The following table lists the server types that can be used in an Application Virtualization Server-based scenarios, along with their corresponding transmission protocols and the external components needed to support the specific server configuration. The table also includes the reporting mechanism and the active upgrade mechanism for each server type. Because these scenarios all use the Application Virtualization Management Server, you can use the internal reporting functionality that is built into the system. If you use an Application Virtualization Management or an Application Virtualization Streaming Server to deliver packages to the client, packages on the server are automatically upgraded when a user logs into the client; if you use IIS servers or a file to deliver the packages to the client, the packages on the client must be upgraded manually.

Here is a nice writeup on APP-V protocols and communications, should be current for ver 4.6
