Firewall Port

Today I would be talking about writing inbound rules to open a port blocked by firewall in the web server.I was working with one of the client and was trying to host a application on a different port. I was able to browse the application locally. When I tried to run the application remotely, I was getting server error. I did not have any clue what was happening. Later I figured out that the firewall was blocking the port 8081.

I have screen shots about the steps involved to open a port
