I have an SQL server on windows 2003.

Did an IPCONFIG and found a "PPP Adapter" with a local address?

Not something I configured nor in my network configurations?  Any Ideas?

I also have a WIndows 2003 with IIS connecting to this box.

Do you have RRAS installed and configured?

It's probably the "RAC PPP Connection using RACPORT".  Go to your device manager, under Modem, and disable the device.  A couple of my Dell 2650 servers installed that service too.
