    or where I shoud open 5631 and 5632 for PCANYWHERE

  2. If you have the built in ICF firewall enabled you can configure exemptions
    for the needed ports and protocols - probably tcp in your case. The problem
    with the Windows 2003 firewall, in the current release, is that if you open
    up an exception those ports will be available to anyone with user
    credentials being the only barrier to access. Open networking properties and
    then the properties for your network adapters/advanced and if the firewall
    is enabled click settings and create a new service for your needs by
    entering the ports and protocols user. Tcp/ip filtering when enabled on the
    adapters can also block access as can an ipsec flittering policy if
    assigned. Other than that check your hardware firewall if used. Check the
    logs in firewalls for dropped/blocked traffic can also be helpful. The
    Windows 2003 built in firewall can log dropped packets if you have it
    configured to do such. Note that Windows 2003 Server has Remote Desktop
    built in that can be used for up to two connections. It uses port 3389
    TCP. --- Steve
