    Uhm... Are you talking about using a firewall to block the ports, or are you trying to open them up?

    If you want a firewall, you'll have to download it. (I.E.: Preventing ports from being used)

    If you want to open a port... you need a program to do it. It's just like in *nix, except different socket libraries and in *nix some of the programs ('services') come with the OS.
