    To open or close ports
    You must be logged on to this computer as an administrator to complete this procedure.

    Open Windows Firewall.
    On the Exceptions tab, choose one of the following options:
    To open a port for a program or service, select the check box for the program or service.
    To close a port for a program or service, clear the check box for the program or service.
