I've looked about everywhere for help on opening ports through firewall, they all say to do it under System Preferences>Sharing, but I don't see anything about my firewall... I need to add this port. Anyone willing to help?

You do this via System Preferences > Security > Firewall > Advanced after turning on and hitting the little '+' button. This link also explains the process.


Firewalls, Proxies, & Ports

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
