I have a DHCP and DNS server(OS: Windows Server 2003 ST).

When I reset IP address of the host stations, I have to turn off the server's forewall, which I believe is not safe at all.

Is there any way to reset IP address of the host stations (with a remote connection from each host) wtih the firewall on?

Thanks a lot!

Thank you for your kind, prompt response.

From a host station, I went to run >cmd > ipconfig /release and then ipconfig /renew.

Beofre doing these, I had to turn off the firewall of the server. Otherwise, I could not release or renew the IP of the host station.

Thanks!

Thanks again for your kind response.

I know how to use the firewall's exception.

I would like to know specifically which port(s) I need to give an exception when resetting IP address from the host station.

Thank you for your kind tip.

I thought that disabling the firewall is a major security risk.

Thanks a lot!

DHCP uses ports 67 and 68 (both UDP).
