How To Open Firewall Port 1433 for SQL Server Database Engine For Use With SCOM (or anything else)

In this very short video, I walk you through the step by step process of opening the 1433 firewall port for SQL Server.  I am doing it because I am setting up a new System Center Operations manager server but the procedures would be the same for any other application that uses SQL Server for the database backend.  Full Details on opening ports for SCOM can be found at http://technet.microsoft.com/da-dk/library/cc540431(en-us).aspx
