I need to manage computers from a DC and need to know which port on the firewall on those computers to open to allow managing them from the DC. I have the firewall on and don't won't to turn it off on these computers.

I am getting the error: Computer \\pc.mydc.com cannot be managed. The remote network path was not found.

You are referring to the Windows Firewall?  If so, you need to open the remote administration exception as described here: http://technet2.microsoft.com/windowsserver/en/library/b8057a7a-a0d3-40b5-8224-ea6a4f5e17231033.mspx

Actually port 139 tcp will work. but that link also works which suggest to enable remoteadmin.
