I'd like for people to be able to log into a secure area of a website I'm hosting, and open up a port on the web server to their IP address for a fixed period of time, say an hour.
I have complete control over the software and hardware which will be hosting the webpage, and so I was wondering if there is there a software or hardware firewall that would allow me to do this?

I think the new Kerio firewall has added the web interface feature for administrator.

Hi

Try smoothwall.org - free and easy to configure with a web interface. You can allow access to the smoothwall once the user has authenticated to your website for opening the port.
