Probably a simple question but how do you get a Win2K server to listen on a certain TCP/IP port that it is not currently listening on?

You have to run a service that listens on that port, for example:

If you are running a web server, it is listening on port 80.

If you are running an FTP server, it is listening on port 20, 21.

If you are running DNS, it is listening on port 53.

and so on...

What service are you trying to use?
