Server 2003, SP2 - WinXP (Virtural)

By Jarrett_Faulk ·

I created two virutal machines one running server2003SP2 and 1 winXP SP3. I ran DC promo on the sever created a admin account and configured the account in a group that can add PC's to the domain.

The only time i can add a pc to the domain is when the firewall is off on both PC's

What configuation am i missing on the firewall that will allow this.

thanks in advance.

For starters

Make sure these ports are allowed

389, 135, 88 and 53

Also double check your DNS settings(just in case).

File sharing

First, File and printer sharing should be in the firewall exemption's list, normally it is by default, double check would not hurt. Open the DNS port 53 on the firewall and make sure the DNS records has those PC's included as an "A" record. This is just as a precaution, but I think the problem is that the firewall is blocking the DNS port.

okay so i've unblocked these ports on the tcpa and upd 389, 135, 88, 53 and here is the issue. when the firewall is on i cannot add pc's to the domain. I turn the server widows firewall off and everything works completely.

i've tested with 2 differnet machines and researched all i can. i'm really at a lost..
