Server 2008 Firewall issues

We are attempting to upgrade from Windows Server 2000 to Server 2008.  I tested everything with Server 2003 and it all worked fine, we should have gone with that version!  Windows Server 2008 has many issues.  First I had to manually modify the firewall to get ACT to work over the network.  However now when the firewall is on ACT takes 30 to 60 seconds to load.  If I turn off the firewall then it loads in less than 1 second!

I don't know which exceptions you my have already added, but here is a knowledgebase document link that contains about 8 files/port numbers you will want to set as exceptions to your Firewall.

I had to do those modifications to get it to work at all.
