On an Azure server, how do I open a port?

I just started using an Azure server.  I need to open a port. How do I do this?  I have set this up using Windows Firewall but it doesn't seem to work.

you don't need to play with windows firewall

U need to create azure network security group (NSG) and latch it to your VM

NSG contains all inbound and outbound rules and can be applied to multiple VMs
U need to define rules at NSG level
