I would like to be able to open a port on windows programatically. I don't care whether is power shell, or something else, but I would like it to be a script that I can simply run as I install a software program. I have no experience in this area, and therefore no code, but I hear net admins do this all the time. Thanks ahead of time. I know people don't necessarily like sharing code, but I am on a tight deadline right now, and it is in fact necessary. I have some other code I need to be getting at right now.
