First there must be a program that listens on that port for it to be open.  If there isn't, there won't be any response and it is effectively closed.

Then you can use telnet from another machine to try to connect to the first machine on that port.  You also might able to use TCPView from Sysinternals to see that it is open and active.  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897437.aspx

And you can check your firewall to see if the port and/or program is allowed thru the firewall.

I'm totally lost. Sorry, I'm not a network guy. I've been assigned this task.

Here's the assignment:

"I need you to check if Alfred’s PC has the 1099 open at the local firewall. Once we can telnet I can configure the monitor." What he means by the monitor is a program called Managed Engine Application Manager. The purpose is to have someone test Jboss and Tomcat.

Please detail what steps i need to take to make this work.

I would first telnet to Alfred’s PC on port 1099 to see if it is open.

telnet Alfred (name or IP address) 1099

Here's the install info for telnet if you need it along with other info in the left column: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc771275%28v=ws.10%29.aspx

When i telnet via IP to his machine, I get "Could not open connection to the host, on port 1099: Connect failed".

I simply need to validate if this port is open on his Win7 machine. I can go to his machine to check, but I dont know what to do. Can you tell me how I can check if this port is open on his local firewall on his win 7 PC? If it is not open, can you give me step by step on how to open/allow 1099?

That "Could not open connection" message is telling you that the port is closed on his computer. To open it, follow these steps:

Start button > Control Panel > Windows Firewall > Advanced Settings > Inbound Rules > New Rule > click Port > Next > type 1099 in the Specified Local Ports box > Next > Next > uncheck Private and Public so this setting only applies when the firewall sees a corporate domain > Next > give the rule a name > Finish

Note that if the listener program is not installed on that computer, the port will still not be open because there will be nothing to connect to.

I've disabled Windows firewall on his PC. I telnet to it but still get same error. I do not show the Jboss or Tomcat service under service manager. I do not know why I get the error when doing a telnet.

You are getting the error because the program is not installed and listening on port 1099.  You can not make a connection (to any port) without a program listening at the destination.

FYI. This tool we use is web base. We put in a URL that points to one of our server we installed the tool on (see screenshot). The program is not installed on "Alfred's" PC. We are trying to telnet to his PC with port 1099, but get the error. "Alfred" is our developer who is testing a CPU spike on a particular server, something relating to Jboss. Any other advise? Windows firewall has been disabled. However, Symantec Anti-virus is still enabled on his PC.

Just to add, Alfred's machine did not appear in the monitoring tool, if that helps.

I don't understand.  Ports do not respond by themselves.  Without a 'listener' program on that machine, the port will never be 'open'.  Without a 'listener', you can Not connect to it.

You said this: "I need you to check if Alfred’s PC has the 1099 open at the local firewall. Once we can telnet I can configure the monitor."

And you said this: "The program is not installed on Alfred's PC."

Those 2 statements contradict each other. If the program is not installed on Alfred's PC, then there is no need to open a port on his PC.

Do you need to connect to port 1099 on the web-based application? If so, that is done with special syntax in the URL that is used to connect to the web server, like this:

https://myserver:1099/path/to/application
