Here is a site that you can go to that will allow you to check what ports on your firewall are open:

jbeaman: That service only checks which ports have services running. Not which ports are open. There is a difference.

(It will not find a port even if it IS open, unless a service answers)

A useful utility for viewing TCP port status on a machine is TCPView at www.sysinternals.com. The tool is great, and sysinternals is one of the best technical sites on the internet for windows - and free.

I wanted to know a similar question like that once, and the solution is a Portmonitor from http://www.leechsoftware.com it's free and if you keep it running it tells you everyport that is open and constantly keeps updating.

Alternatively you could open a dos window and type netstat and that will tell you all the open ports.
