How to Open a Port in Kaspersky

Kaspersky's Internet Security suite has a function where it blocks traffic from accessing ports on your computer unless those ports have been opened through the software. Once you open a port in Kaspersky, any programs that communicate through that port have unrestricted access to communicate to and from the Internet, so use caution when opening a port, as this can lead to unintended security problems.
