Dhcpd versus Windows Vista

I experience difficulty with Windows Vista accepting a DHCP lease from the
isc server, from which I can not directly pinpoint the origin of the
problem. It appears that Vista is not accepting a lease when it has no open
connection to the internet.
Now I find on the microsoft this article about DHCP problems:
My in depth knowledge of the DHCP process is not very good. Can someone on
this list tell me if the problem microsoft describes has somthing to do
with the problem I see.
When Vista fails to accept a lease, I see on the server log that the server
get a DHCP request and send a DHCP offer, but this offer is not
acknowledged when I am behind a closed firewall. As soon as I open the
firewall by configuring NAT ( I am on a privat IP range), I see a normal
DHCP sequence in the logfile.
If not relevant to my problem, can this microsoft bug be relevant in
combination with the ISC server?
