    Default can't access windows 2003 server when it uses windows firewall

    I am running Windows 2000 Pro and ZA 6.1.
    If my Windows 2003 server has its windows firewall turned on it takes FOREVER to login and get my desktop up and running.
    I have the Windows 2003 server's IP listed in my trusted zone.
    It is the only Server on my network.
    I have my trusted zone set to Medium.
    I do not have my local network as Trusted (I don't trust the other PCs on my network).
    If I turn off the Windows 2003 windows firewall my PC logs in quickly and the desktop comes up quickly too.
    Is this normal?
    Is there something else I need to do to allow my WIndows 2003 server to run w/ its windows firewall turned on?
    Any insight would be greaty appreciated.

    Operating System:Windows 2000 Pro
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)
    Software Version:6.1

    Can you give the server a static IP address?

    Yes, the server has a static IP and I have it listed as trusted in ZA.

    What happens if you turn the internet security to medium?

    If I put my Internet zone to medium it works fine.
    Obviously I don't want to run in that configuration.
