Windows firewall sp2
Posted on 2007-03-29
I seem to be having a small problem with windows firewall on a server 2003 enteprise edition.
I've installed SP2 and all relevent updates. the server is setup as one domain controller with dns.
All is working AOK on that side - the problem started when i tried to join a computer's to the domain, i was getting access denied errors etc, (these were fresh installs) I found that disabling the firewall sorted this problem.
Now that i have 5 users connected to the domain they all have problems logging on to it. It just hangs there for ages and ages. If i disable windows firewall they connect immediately.
Do i need to open any ports for Active D and DNS - never had to do this before from memory - strange.
Thanks for any help.
