Hello guys, I need some help, I just implemented a smooth wall fire wall at my office but when user login, they can't see the server the domain controler. I get the error that states that it had to load the last roaming profile. The firewall is doing dhcp. All computers could go out to the Internet with no problem.

Can the clients connect to the domain controller properly, just not load their roaming profiles from wherever they're being stored? Is the firewall blocking the traffed between the clients and the server? If you can log in without an issue (try logging in on a workstation as a user that's never logged in there before to confirm - if you're using the same username/password, it can be logging in with cached credentials).

Once you're logged in, can you manually browse to the network location hosting your roaming profile? The user should be able to view the files related to their own profile - if you're not able to do this, then the ports related to Windows file sharing may be blocked by your new firewall.

For starters, here are the basic ports that your clients need to be able communicate over in order to run basic login and file share browsing:

From the article:

TCP 135 : MS-RPC
TCP 1025 & 1026 : AD Login & replication
TCP 389 : LDAP
TCP & UDP 53 : DNS
TCP 445 : SMB , Microsoft-ds
TCP 139 : SMB
UDP 137 & 138 : NetBIOS related
UDP 88 : Kerberos v5

Can you confirm that clients are able to communicate over those ports?

I also forgot to add the internal DNS as the primary DNS server.
