All I need is to allow port 1205 on the server.
I installed Symantec over the weekend and thats when I noticed the users can't access a DB off the server and it needs port 1205. If I telnet to the server on that port I get denied.
The sonicwall firewall was not messed with over the weekend so I don't think it is that.

Did you install just Symantec AV or also the Firewall they produce?

To use GPO to disable the Firewall, from your default Domain GPO:

Expand the Computer Configuration folder, then the Administrative Templates folder.
 Expand the Network folder, then the Network Connections folder, then the Windows Firewall folder.
 Select the Standard Profile folder.
 Double-click the Windows Firewall: Protect all network connections option.
 Select Disabled, then click OK.
 Select the Domain Profile folder.
 Double-click the Windows Firewall: Protect all network connections option.
 Select Disabled, then click OK.

I had to use the registry edit to disable the firewall. And now the DB works. I have to play with it to get it to work while enabled.
