Normaly they're open.
Go to Network and Dial up Connections> Local Area Connections and look at Properties.
Select TCP/IP on the General tab and look at Properties.
Go to Advanced> Options TCP/IP filtering Options
and once again look at Properties

In addition to what answer one said;
Make sure that they are open on your firewall/router. If you are using a proxy to connect to the Internet make sure that it is open on the proxy.

These ports need to be opened for an IP Telephony application to make VoIP calls. Win2k is doing the internet connection sharing. To make calls from the specific computer these ports should be opened on the Win2k computer. No firewall, proxy or router. Only NAT !

If there's no proxy or firewall running, then these ports are open. However, because the server is running NAT, the IP packets will not be forwarded anywhere beyond the Win2K server unless you can set up port forwarding on the NAT server. I'm not familiar with Win2K ICS, because I always use either an external NAT router or proxy software. However, if it can be done, I'm sure it would be somewhere within the configuration screens for ICS. You need to know what internal IP address is being used by the server for the telephony application, and forward the packets coming in on those specific ports to that IP address. Hope this helps!

Hello,
I solved the problem. The hint you gave me was acceptable. I opened the 3 ports and forward the packets to the specific IP. Thanks

Hello,
That's exactly what should be done. If you have any idea on how it can be handle with Win98 or Win NT, I'll find my way with Win2K. Thanks for further or any assistance
