Tor doesn't open those ports. It simply interprets incoming (inside of
Tor) requests for that hidden service name and makes outgoing connections
to the address you specify. You have to run your own application on the
port if you want something to listen there.

Makes sense -- it sounds like you aren't running anything on that port.
