    I need to choose a free port for something game-related. I will then unblock it on my firewall.

    How do I determine:

    a) What ports are free for me to use?

    b) What ports are SAFE for me to unblock?


    (My hardware firewall is kind of a pain so I may wish to leave this port open all the time.)

    Thanks in advance!

    I don't think it really matters. I've used all kinds of radmon 5 digit ports and never had a problem.
