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.
