Network Traffic caused by SQL Server 2000 ?

I have an urgent question?..Last week I installed SQL Server 2000 in a Windows 2000 server. I started to have problems with my internet connection, it was down every hour. I checked my network with a tool and I discovered that my bandwidth had excessive network traffic, besides that, the internet was very slow.

I am sure that the SQL Server installation caused that, but I don't know why?

I stopped the SQL Services and everything was normal after that.

I need to restart SQL again, but I don't know what to configure to stop the network collisions and the traffic?

Can somebody help me?

Is it true that I have to deactivate Named Pipes protocol?

Thanks in advance!!!

There are a lot of viruses that specifically target SQL Server.  If the sql server is open to the outside world you may be infected.  SQL server should be kept safely behind a firewall at all times.

This sounds like Slammer. Have you downloaded the patch? Also, change your SA password. If SA password is blank, you are susceptible to slammer infection.

Agree with the above--make sure you have SP3a installed (first SP that protects you from slammer) and do a thorough virus scan...
