Knock, Knock...Who's there? Port Knock!

In our society, it often takes tragedy, to bring about change; unfortunate, but true. I am no exception. Over the weekend, I may have accidentally left a few ports open. With 65,535 of them, it's hard to remember if they're all closed and stealthed, or if 1241 is still open from my Nessus session, if my Slingbox is still slinging shows over 5001, or if one of those ports in the 27000 range was left open by my alter-ego, half-life addict.
