Yes, default settings for Win2k3 has the ports for SQL Server blocked.

The easiest way to fix this is to run the "configure my server" wizard... select "SQL Server" (if memory serves me...)

could check personal firewall from the 2003 server (on the network adapter properties)
it should let pass sql port - 1433
