Actually, I'm not sure that you can completely disable the Windows Firewall on a Server 2008 system. I tried stopping the Windows Firewall service, and all net connectivity went away. (Fortunately, I was just one KVM switch button press away at the time! Heh).
In any case, I don't think it's the firewall. Packet sniffing would see the packet requests, and see that no responses were received (because the firewall was blocking them).
What I see, instead, is ... nothing. The client never even puts a packet on the wire to the Admin Server. Now, as they're on the same box, I'm not 100% sure that WinPCAP & Wireshark would see the packets. Oops, actually, I just did a test, telnet'ing on the same machine to both its loopback and its LAN IP addresses, and in neither case did WinPCAP/ Wireshark see the packets. Darn.
Anyone know how to sniff packets internal to the TCP stack on a Windows Server 2008 system, so as to be able to see e.g. "telnet [my LAN IP address]", since it never actually goes out a (physical) Ethernet interface??
[ Ah, and in light of tjacquem's post, probably not worth investigating packets and firewalls further; seems like we're not using the AVG product correctly, or AVG has a B.U.G. ]

More than that, it is only the remote admin that's not working as the client is able to update from the remote server, which is as well reachable on port 4158 :-S

I have a Win2k3 SP2 box and AVG 2011 client is running normally on it, and it is also the AVG Admin 2011 server. Using the server name for "Server:", port 4158 and 6051 for "port for incoming messages". The Windows firewall is disabled on that box though.
