Well, clearly the server does, or otherwise the client won't be able to
reach it at all. The server will reply to the same UDP port the client's
original packet came from. If the mere act of sending the original
request causes the firewall to open that port for replies, then the client
doesn't have to do anything else. But otherwise yes, because the server
needs to be able to communicate back with the client.
