command line or GUI?

I got my solution.
we can open port 110 by starting pop3 server using following command.

/etc/init.d/dovecot start

chkconfig dovecot on

but it was giving me error stating
chkconfig: command not found

uname -asn

linux 2.6.9-5.ELsmp #1 SMP Wed Jan 5 19:30:39 EST 2005 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

looks like RHEL, so chkconfig should work

try system-config-services, and add the pop3 daemon to automatically startup in there

system-config-security or system-config-firewall may also help
