What for?

I don't know why you would want this but I would try editing your /etc/services file.

In there is a list of all the services and the ports they use etc.

this may help more...

where would i find the file that sets open and closed ports? or would that be in the kernel configs? i think this is what i need... so i can enable port 80 to accept telnet connections... (??)

I would use ssh. It lets you specify the port you would like to use and is much more secure than telnet.
