Yes, you can manage ports individually from NT or Windows 2000. Here's how: NT -- Open up the TCP/IP properties of your network adapter and check the "enable security" option. Click the advanced tab and you will have the ability to permit/deny individual TCP/IP/udp ports. Windows 2000 -- Open up the TCP/IP properties of your network adapter and go to advanced. Next go to the option tab and select "TCP/IP filtering." You will now have the option to enable individual port filtering.
