To only download data from other nodes, you don't need to open any outgoing ports at all. Opening your :30303 to the world is required only if you want to run full node, helping other people to use Ethereum.

I'm wondering if light clients listen on public ports. So other nodes (light or full) can interact with light clients if such interactions exist at all.
