How to open up a TCP port to listen on a local host

Recently, I installed an application which came from the vendor (Highpoint) of a raid controller. The application enables maintenance/administration of the controller. The host computer is a Windows 2003 Server Std SP2, configured as a member server.

For some reasons (which the vendor is unable to help resolve), the installation was not successful despite repeated attempts. Something related to a file drvinst.exe failure to do whatever it is supposed to do.

The application otherwise appear to work - if it could reach a TCP port 7042 on the local host. Netstat reviews that that port is not opened. (Windows firewall on the host computer is not enabled).

I reckon that if by some means, I could get the host computer to listen on that port, there is a very good chance that the application will work fully.

Any help from the experts would be most appreciated. Thanks.

The listening application needs to be the Highpoint software -
if it doesn't listen you are probably out of luck.
