How do I open ports 5198/udp and 5199/udp on a slackware based firewall?

You could try :
iptables -I INPUT -p udp --dport ( insert the port number here) -j ACCEPT
So, thats --dport ( for the destination ) and --sport (for the source)
In my experience, the command to change a port has not changed from distro to distro.

NOTE: I am finding these sites to be very informative for my own uses:
some neat port connection rate / limit examples

some neat logging examples

Hope this stuff helps. see ya!
