I doubt that your Rebol script is accepting connections only opening a
connection to your target machine when required.
So on that basis there would be no ports open due to Rebol. Unless you were
running a FTP server script or something.
However I think you have bigger concerns than Rebol if your machine is full
time connected (actually same problem for
dial up) to the internet. There are constant network port scans occurring
across the internet.
I suggest you go to http://grc.com and read the "Shields Up" information
provided there. Also look for the information about
denial of service.
