Not sure what you mean by "get programs to act as servers" . Not all programs are meant to work as servers. Programs that run as server also usually don't have all the functionality that there client side counterparts have. Could explain a little more on the problem.

He may be talking about games, in which case he'll need to find out which port the game uses and forward it on his firewall. Check the game's manual for it if it's the case.
