ISP always has all ports open. its your router that decides if you have them open or not.

do you want to test a single/a couple of ports or all of them?

and could you please remove/shorten the link in your sig, makes the screen go weird (at least with my resolution, which is 1152 x864) because the link has to be on the same line.

well you could use some download program (well any program that connects to the internet) which allows you to set the port it uses. Then just see if it works.
And btw, if you use a torrent program you will probably get connections even if the port is not open, though there will be fewer connections and the download speeds will be slower.
