When you say firewall, do you mean Windows firewall or network firewall?

Also, is your antivirus/antimalware on the server up to date?

So it's a separate firewall.

I would check the logs in untangle and see what traffic is going/coming from the IP of the server.  If you have no software firewall enabled on the sever it will still have all it's ports open but untangle will filter which ports go to the outside and come in to the inside.
