I find the tcp port is always changing when I manage dhcp
server remotely, sometimes it is 1171, or 1056, or 1xxx,
etc. so it is difficult to span the firewall, could you
tell me if there is a way to manage dhcp by a fixed port?
Thanks!

Use Terminal Services in admin mode & access it via port 3389?

As Lanwench said you can use TS via port 3389 TCP which will be a encrypted
tunnel if both ends are W2K/XP Pro/W2003. If you do that make sure that the
servers you have TS enabled on are using strong/complex passwords and try to
configure the firewall to accept inbound connections from only authorized IP
addresses to port 3389 TCP on the authorized server. If you have a VPN, you
can connect to the VPN and then use TS or use mmc snapin for Computer
Management or DHCP through the VPN tunnel to the local LAN computer name/IP
address. --- Steve

Alternatively, there is a KB published way to define the
ports used by the RPC instead of allowing it use of
dynamically assigned ephemeral ports, but whether
this would work in your environment depends on what
all uses RPC with the machine.
