[cfme][docs] add chapter about IP connectivity between appliances

Section Number and Name:
Describe the issue:
In some deployments CFME appliances are separated from each other by firewalls that require explicit rules to permit traffic.
Suggestions for improvement:
Add a section of which TCP ports need to be open between appliances, and what they are used for.
Some ports may only be needed during deployment, yet unused during appliance lifetime - this should also be documented.
All of the ports used by cloudforms can be found here https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_CloudForms/3.2/html-single/Installing_CloudForms_on_Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux_OpenStack_Platform/index.html
Table 1. Ports Used by CloudForms Management Engine
Thanks for the info. This doesn't look RHOS specific - I wonder why it's hidden so deep in this specific guide and if we could move it into a generic guide.
Also, it would be interesting to see which port each component needs to know where they should be open. This is partially done in the table you shared.
Assigning to Petr for review.
Returning to the default assignee to be re-triaged as the schedule allows.
