If you are running a desktop you can use the system-config-firewall command Which should also be accessible from the System->Administration pull down menu.

It can be installed from yum if not already on your system.

It's installed by default.

I don't understand how the OP missed that; in KDE it's Applications > Administration (the very first menu)

In most firewall tools you allow services and the firewall opens the corresponding ports.
