You can use the netsh command to do all kinds of stuff with ports. For example you can open port 23 using the following command.

netsh firewall set portopening TCP 23 MyPort

If you type netsh from a command prompt and press enter, you can then press a ? enter to display properties of that command. As you can see there are multiple tiers of commands under the netsh command.

Hope this helps!
