I am trying to obtain an IP address from our Windows 2008 Small Business Server with a Pocket PC 2003 Device.  This has always been a sketchy before but ended being successful after several tries, but this time I am not being successful.  I've looked around on the server and it does appear that the Windows Filtering Platform is the culprit.  I see 5152 and 5157 event log messages in the security log and also see that Windows firewall has logged that it blocked the DHCP request.  What do I need to configure on the server to allow this connection?  The event log message is below.  Thanks for any help.

The Windows Filtering Platform blocked a packet.
