Ghost 8.0 - Unable to establish contact with session <SessionName> error

In our organization, we used Ghost 7.5 to Re-image or making an image through GhostCasting Server.  But ever since we upgrade our DHCP servers (2 of them) to Win 2003 Server, the Ghostcasting Server is not working anymore.  I thought the version 7.5 is not capable with win 2003 therefore I installed the version 8  to one of the administrator PC and try it again but the error still there.  Here is the error message:

Unable to establish contact with session <SessionName>.
Check that the GhostCasting Server application is ready to accept clients! (10030)

The funny thing is i'm able to use Ghost Console version 8 to Remote Install Client but not able to clone or re-image the client machine.
I also check on net to see what is the error 10030 mean.  They ask me to check the session name to make sure it right.  But i'm 100% sure that there is nothing wrong with the session name because I use only 1 session name since 2003.

So I think may be there is something wrong at the DHCP server, we need to do something there, but dont really know what is it.  I may be wrong.

Hope the experts could help me out of this.  If i'm not able to solve it, i may have to manually install more than 100 pcs by the end of this year.

Thanks in advance.

PS:  feel free to ask if you are not fully understand the problem, because english is not my first language. :)  Thanks.
