Presumably you have defined a scope and activated it on the new DHCP server ?

Since you are on your local network (hopefully), ports really dont matter as much. Your clients will send out a broadcast looking for a DHCP server. If your DHCP server is on the same network, and the scope is properly defined with options set, you should have no problems.
