Firewall at last...
Server 2003 R2 32/64Bit
I'm SLLLOWLY turning on the firewall for my servers (leaving the DCs for last) I was wondering if I should block 135 and 139 (and or disable NetBIOS) I've blocked it on my backup server with no ill affects (yet)...
I get a little confused with the windows firewall, if I block file and print sharing it doesn't stop me accessing another servers files but does stop my files from being shared. So do I need port 25 open for a server to send an email through to exchange? (for local alerts and the such...)

You are disabling file and print on that server, not for that user logged on that server accessing other servers files and share if this isn't disabled.
For exchange you need 25 for communication via SMTP. If use POP3 or IMAP or http for exchange then you have to open these too. In addition to a number of others ports for DNS, LDAP, replication etc...there are a few.
Why are you deploying a firewall on your server internally?

But internally i leave them off as most virus's etc just spread using ports that are open (i.e file and printer sharing ports 135/139) so not much point
