    Are you talking about on the Windows XP Firewall?

    No, I am talking about the OS itself, not the firewall

    That is how you do it. With a firewall. XP has a built in firewall. If you turn it off everything is let in. If you turn it on you can go into the advanced configuration of it and select which Ports you want to open up.

    Go to control panel, then Network. Right-click on your LAN Connection. Highlight TCP/IP and click on Properties. Click on Advanced, then click on the Options Tab. Highlight TCP/IP Filtering, then Properties.
