Hi. I'm having trouble connecting to a server that is running Windows2k3. From the console I am able to ping out, but I can't ping the server from anywhere else. There is no firewall service running that would prevent the connection. I am confused because I can't even ping the server but I can ping out. Can anyone help? Thanks.
Do you have a firewall running on the server? If so, check the settings.
Check that your Gateway settings are correct (Start menu | Control panel | Network connections | Local Area Connection | Properties | Internet Protocol | Properties | Default gateway -- check this wih the settings your server provider gave you.
