Since you don't say what the program is, what it does, version/distro of Linux, the environment you're using it in, or what your goals are, there is NOTHING we can tell you. Please read the "Question Guidelines" and "How to ask a smart question" links in my posting signature.

Short answer: you don't "open a port"...you run a service that LISTENS on that port.
Longer answer: if your firewall is blocking a specific port, then you have to allow traffic on that port first. Also, if you're 'behind proxy and browsing restrictions', then be aware that IF you succeed in doing what you're after, you are circumventing your network security policies. If this is at a company, they WILL notice and they CAN fire you. Please see the LQ Rules.

connecting to my dongle despite of being behind proxy and browsing restrictions

dear TB0ne

I am actually working on a compilebox i.e building an online compiler,my goal is to set up a prebuilt opensource compilebox released
in github,it is built using Dockers as a base,for security reasons.Everything is properly installed and is running,but when ever
i try to run a code on the compile area(input area) it gives a time out,it is hence said by the author that its a networking issue.
you can try allowing traffic on a different port by attaching a dongle.
currently it is listening to port 80,but i actually want to try other way round

thanks in advance
