I have used commands like this in a BAT file:

echo -- Opening Port for Remote Control
netsh firewall set portopening protocol = TCP port = 5990 name = HelpDesk mode =
 ENABLE scope = CUSTOM addresses=,

Which allows connections to port 5590 from 2 subnets.

For VBS examples, take a look at

which looks excellent.

Hi Josealf,

Thank you for your response and for this information. Is there a VB script
or other method I can use for this purpose? I use a signed Java applet to
download, install, and execute stunnel, but can insert a step to run a VB
or other script on the host prior. I suspect the stunnel installer may do
this already, but after looking, did not see anything.

Thank you
