    Windows 2003 Server SP1, PDC & DHCP controller
    LAN connected to the internet via router and cable modem.
    When the server's Windows Firewall is enabled, LAN connectivity is lost.
    Firewall log shows that UDP and TCP packets from the workstation to the
    server get dropped.
    Firewall is configured with file and printer sharing as the only exception.
    Workstations are WinXP Pro SP2, members of the domain, with Windows firewall
    With the server firewall off, intranet & internet traffic flows fine.
    How do I tweak the firewall to solve this?
