Getting server to listen on certain unused port?

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

Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Internet Services Manager
from here you can change the default port that IIS uses for web, ftp and mail server.

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.
