Server accessible ports discovery

Hello,  we have a conformance requirement at my customer to discover and display all the "accessible" tcp-ip ports on a given server. Our plan is to use HPCM and make these tcpip ports as part of the policies to show conformance.

We have everything setup so that ip-service-endpoints are discovered but we need more than that; we need to show all accessible ports, no matter if they are in use or not. 

One possible way we are considering is to retrieve the information out of the local firewall rules.

Has anyone experienced something like this? Any suggestion?

Thank you,
