The easiest way is with your router... assuming you want the port open on the server... which is really confusing... you could also just plain shut off the service that uses that port.

Create an IPSec policy that will block all traffic bound for only that port and allow all other traffic.

If you're unfamiliar with IPSec, the following tutorial will get you started: http://www.petri.co.il/configuring_ipsec_policies_through_gpo.htm (this tutorial assumes an Active Directory environment, but you can also create a local IPSec policy by typing 'gpedit.msc' from the Run line of a non-AD server to edit the local GPO on the server.)

Hope this helps.
