How to open ports

Hi all,

OS: openSUSE 10.3 (X86-64)

I want to open two ports 9051 and 9052 on this machine to make few processes to run. Currently the firewall is off and i want to open these ports without starting the firewall again.

Please help me to open these ports.
Thanks in advance!

#SuSEfirewall2 status
SuSEfirewall2: Warning: ip6tables does not support state matching. Extended IPv6 support disabled.
SuSEfirewall2: SuSEfirewall2 not active

 # netstat -nan |grep -i 9051
 # echo $?
 # netstat -nan |grep -i 9052
 # echo $?

You can't "open" a port, that doesn't really make sense. a port listens for connections (i.e. seen in netstat) by virtue of something running and connecting it. The firewall can't "open" it, only prevent or permit access through to something else that is listening. So first things first, run something on that port.

yes i am trying to run client processes but they are failing to start and they make use of ports 9051 and 9052.
The server process is up and running and it makes use of 9050 and that port is LISTENing.
So i thought there is something to be with ports
