How to enable World Wide Services (IIS) in the Windows Firewall for arbitrary ports

The predefined rules in the Windows Firewall have the fixed ports:
World Wide Web Services (HTTP Traffic-In) - 80
World Wide Web Services (HTTPS Traffic-In) - 443
You should create your own rule and apply it for (!!!) all programs.

Thanks for details from:

Why does it have "Apply to all programs and services" and not just the "World Wide Web Publishing Service / W3SVC"?

How to enable “World Wide Services (HTTP)” in the firewall using command line?
