Unfortunately not. Windows Server 2003 didn't have much in the way of remote firewall control. The firewall feature was completely rewritten for Windows Server 2008 and can be controlled via group policy, but for Win2k3, there just isn't a good way to do this.

If you can open the services console for that server remotely you can stop the windows firewall service.
