crazy firewall problem during discovery

I've been trying to figure this out for days.
I've read the SIM firewall manual, but it isn't helping.

this is the problem:
Discovery can NOT be successful unless i turned off the Public Profile Firewall. I even try as far as enabling port 0-65535 through all the network profile(domain, private, and public) and enabled ICMPv4 on all network profile, but discovery process still can't work unless i turned off the Public Profile firewall off.

SIM server is running 2008 r2
Managed server, server1 is running 2008 R2

PING setting in SIM Server is set to use port 80.(which means i do not need to create ICMP exception on my firewall)

server1 has multiple network connection(iscsi, failover) but they are all on a separate private network, not reachable from the domain network. So there is only 1 possible connection from the SIM server, which is through the network that is connected to the domain profile.

Discovery only works when i turn off the Public Profile firewall. again, if i turn it on, and create an exception from port 0-0-65535 that applies to all network profile, it will NOT work.

Can someone please help me?? i'm desperate.
