Solaris port question... please help asap!!!
I have solaris 5.9 running, I can't for the life of me recall how to open a port, and make it so it will be open even after a reboot?

Check /etc/services and remove # sign before relevant port.

Can the entry look like this...
telelogic 36678/tcp # Telelogic Doors
Or would the "telelogic" have to be exact to the service calling it?
Or is there a way to just open it as listening generically such as...
"listen 36678/tcp #Doors" ?

Just as in Linux, you have 2 options - either the process runs as a daemon (all the time) and grabs/opens the port, or you have inetd listening for connections and starting the corresponding process when something connects.
So either start the daemon, or edit your inetd.conf for the required service.
Example clip for FTP service that inetd listens for:
# FTPD - FTP server daemon # ftp stream tcp6 nowait root /usr/sbin/in.ftpd in.ftpd -a ftp stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/sbin/in.proftpd in.proftpd
