I would know how to do it in C, but I am no twisted expert. The idea
would be to open the socket and hand it off to the service to use. I am
sure there is a way to do it in Twisted (opening a port and using it in
What you don't want to do is just "test" the port (opening it and
closing it). Once you have it opened, you need to keep it open.
