    Hmmm....I don't think it's port 445 after all. Do you have these allowed?

    On XP, and thus probably on 2K3 though I don't have one to hand, it under:
    Local Area Connection Properties
    Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties
    WINS tab

    Generally Default should work, but you might want to test it with "Enable",
    just try putting it back to "Default" after you've got everything working.

  11. Take properties of your LAN card here again click the Properties tab ->
    select Internet Protocol(TCP/IP) and click properties -> Advanced -> WINS
    here you will find the option to Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP

    Still cant login to my domain when the firwall is active on the windows
    firewall page at the bottom it says "windows firewall is using non-domain
    settings". i have the following exceptions...

    file sharing
    remote desktop
    upnp framework

    all of which are checked

    i opened a port on 135 tcp and named in rpc. Any other ideas?
