I've been looking into setting up Exchange GAL sync between 2 separate organizations (Exchange Forests). The requirements are for a 1 way sync (read GAL and update/delete/add contacts to GAL in org B as needed). I know FIM 2010 can do this, but I'm not sure about the requirements\setup.
Reading the 'before you begin section' at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff512685(v=ws.10) mentions Sharepoint Services & website.
Organization A in my scenario is large organization (around 6000 users) and organization B is small, I'd rather avoid installing Sharepoint 2010 if I can help it. Would I need to install and configure Sharepoint 2010 in both organizations for FIM 2010?
For simplicity I'm looking at alternatives:

You only require the FIM Synchronization Service in order to achieve this.
Therefore you do not need the FIM Service (Portal); therefore you do not need any Sharepoint components either.

To install FIM sync between 2 organizations, I'm assuming I'd need the client and server component?
Am I right in thinking I'd need the server in organization A (holds master GAL) and the client in organization B (holds the GAL to be modified)?
Also, I take it terms of communications between the two organizations, the main things I would need are ports 5725 and 5726 for the client to server communication and the server portal being contactable via https?

Install one FIM Sync server in Org A.
Setup 2 GALSYNC MAs, one MA to Org A and the other MA to Org B.
The port you would need open is either LDAP or LDAP over SSL (depending on your security requirements).
Please take a look at the following resource for all the information & walkthroughs: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/1726.global-address-list-synchronization-galsync-resources.aspx
Hope this helps,
