Can you suggest me some programs (freeware) which will give me the open ports on a remote machine (also on my machine).

For the remote machine NMap is available for *nix and Win32.
For the local machine Fports works nicely on Win32 and I'm sure a *nix type will give their preference for those OS's

I'll second that on Nmap and Fport... Great programs...
Also, if you not only want to use a port scanner but know how it works, take a look at HTRegz's PyScan written in Python. He has a complete tutorial on it with the source code attached (here). I've tried it and it works great. It also inspired me to learn Python
