I'd like to open up a port for some software that I recently installed on my home PC.  I have a Cisco 1700 series and I'm not sure of the command for this.

It would depend on the config of the 1700...can you post your config?  (please remove all passwords) thanks.

You need to create an Access Control List, then add it to the external interface.

Well, depending on what port the software uses (in this example I'm going to use Microsoft Remote Desktop Services which is tcp port 3389)

Assuming you can telnet in and enable and conf term.

ip nat inside source static tcp <ip address of your machine> 3389 <your internet ip> 3389 extendable

Pretty sure that should do the trick for you.
