On a Server 2008 R2 I installed a license manager for a s.w. called DHI Mike Urban and ArcGIS 10.1. this will be a license server for windows 7 users to use.
How can I check to see that this service/program on the server is allowing access through port 8888. ?

You can open ports from the command line in Server 2008 R2 - this should work for you:

netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name="DHI" dir=in action=allow localport=8888 protocol=tcp

Thanks for advice
I ended up uninstalling, their product needs a bit more work before running without their Dongle setup.
