There is no error listed in your post, cant you provide this ?, someone will help out more then


PS> As a random guess , have you added your DC in as a DNS server in ? :)
Also, could you tell us something about your configuration?  You say there is a firewall between your client and your server?

The ports used to join computers to domains are routinely blocked by internet firewalls (with good reason!).  Or were you thinking that some firewall on the server was blocking an intranet client (possible, but unlikely)?

On the network adaptor in TCP/IP properties, make sure TCP/IP is set to obtain an IP and DNS.

It will ask for the domain login and password, make sure you use the domain administrator credentials.
