Probably a simple question but how can you get a Win2K server to listen on a certain unused TCP/IP port?

What do you mean by listen exactly? All you need to do to get TCP\IP to listen on a port is to open the socket. If you create a small VB app with a socket control on the form and tell it when the form loads to open the socket(port) it will do that and will remain in a listening state as long as the form is up.
