I'm no firewall expert, but I'll try.

Opening a port in the firewall is not enough; there must be a service or
daemon behind responding on that port. Till that moment, they should show
up as "closed".

Also, if your intention is that another (2nd) machine answers on those
ports, simply opening them up in the firewall is not enough.
