Make sure the second column for this rule does NOT have a red stop sign with a minus in it. If it does click it, so that it changes. Click the Add button on the right hand side of this window. Enter a name for this program in to the Rule Name box. It doesn't really matter what you put in to that box, but something that will remind you why this rule exists would be a good idea. Put a dot into the Inbounds and Outbounds radio button. Use the IP Protocol drop down box to select the protocol of the ports you are allowing. Let's take a look at the Source (PC>>Net)/Destination (Net>>PC) area. In that area set the IP: Address drop down box to Equals my @. In that area set the TCP/UDP port drop down box to In Range A:B or Equals. You would use In Range A:B when you were allowing a range a ports, and you would use Equals when you were allowing one port. If you are allowing a range of ports enter the lowest number of that range into the textbox directly below the TCP/UDP port drop down box. Then enter the highest number of that range into the second box down from the TCP/UDP port drop down box. If you are allowing a single port, just enter that port in to the textbox directly below the TCP/UDP port drop down box.
