We have a server that we just promoted to a domain controller.  Since we have done that, there are a few laptops that can not get to what they need.  We talked with the software people and they said that the problem was when we promoted the server, it closed essential ports.  We do not have the firewall enabled.  Is there any way to open the needed ports?

As question states that firewall is not enabled, all ports will be open.
Can the laptop users connect to anything on the server like network shares?
Any error messages? Anything in eventlog (client and server side)?

The Windows firewall is disabled.

All ports will be open when firewall is disabled.

As I asked earlier, do you get any error when trying to connect? Anything in eventlog?

Nothing shows in event log.  When I open the program on the server, I get the error: "Bind error #10013".

The error message sounds more like it tries to bind a port for listening that is already used by another service/process, so check if the software can be configured to use another port.
Do you know what port it tries to use as standard port?

UDP 64158 and 64159.  We did a network scan and it doesn't show anything else using those ports.

No.  Nothing is on the network but the PC's.  It was working until we made the server a domain controller.

The software is also running Apache Tomcat 5.0.

We just found out that Tomcat has nothing to do with this process.  The software support is going to change ports in the software.  We will test it then.

Our software tech is saying that after a DNS patch, DNS will lock down all ports above 4000.  Is there a way to unlock these.
