Hidden Server on Domain, FrontPage Access --> Remotely?

I have Windows Server 2000 and it is running IIS, and it isn't showing up on my Domain list or Network Neighborhood.  IS there any way that the previous administrator could have hidden the server so no one else would "bother it"?  I want to remotely change the website remotely via a workstation on another floor, which is on the same network/domain.  I have done this before on other networks, but this one has baffled me!  I want to use Front Page 2000 to edit it.  

Thanks!

Check:
If you can get to it by \\ipaddress\share or \\ipaddress\c$\inetpub
If it shows up in DNS or if theres duplicate listings on the IP.

check to make sure the 2000 server itself is on the domain and that the permissions are set correctly for both the shares/server...

The server has all neccessary protocals & "stuff" installed like the other servers, (domains & networking), I was told the previous administrator did something to hide the server from local machines  (in the Netowrk Neighborhood).  Im not sure what she could have done to do that.  Is there a check box some where?

its possible that they used the Lockdown Utility provided by Microsoft... Might want to see if that is installed and if it is, uninstall/reinstall it selecting the appropriate options for what you want...

The lockdown tool should not cause the computer to be "invisible", its for securing a server.. Check netbios and DNS.. Maybe even a proprietary FW or something.. If you dont find anything, check running processes and so on..

use the following command in a dos box from the server.

net config server /hidden:NO

net config server /? for more options.
