What ports do my ISP (a cable-tv/modem-one named galnet.dk) need to open if it should be possible to set up a CS-Server (Win2k) ?
If there´s anything else I should know about it, I would be very happy to get the info along the answer *S* (I put in a little extra points)

There are many ports the cs server can use. You can specify the port when you launch the server.

The default server port is 27015.
The default client port is 27005.
Since you have the server, you can define the server port, however, you have no control over whuch ports a client might use. On my LAN at home, every machine uses a different client port, for example.

then I can understand that my isp (galnet.dk) which holds the real connection to the internet have to open the ports 27015 so any interested player can join a game on my game-pc-server at home, behind the ISP (galnet.dk) internet-server ?

There is a forum on the Amateur-Hour web site:
http://www.amateur-hour.net
That have answered similar questions in the past. Perhaps you can find answers there. They are very experienced with setting up CS servers, and can probably help you through it.

Here's your answer, all the ports you need open:

Half-Life Authenticating Server: TCP 7002 -> half-life.east.won.net:7002
Half-Life WON Server: TCP 6003 -> half-life.east.won.net:6003
Half-Life Server Master: UDP 27010 -> half-life.east.won.net:27010
Half-Life Game Server (normal): UDP 27015 -> ip.address.of.game.server:27015

On that last one, port 27015 is the defaul port for the game server. That is user definable and if you change it on the server, you will obviously need to change the port forward.
