If the Windows Firewall is disabled, all inbound traffic will be permitted
to the server in question unless you have a third-party firewall installed.
Generally speaking, this is a bad idea for an Internet-connected server, I
would much more strongly recommend enabling the WF and creating a port
exception for TCP 69 to meet the needs of your application - see the
following for more information:
