Im a technician of 8 years but have never had to work with servers. I have Server 2003 (Enterprise ed) and 5 connected clients on the intranet. All the clients are communicating with the server without a hitch including printing etc. However, the other day all the client pc's suddenly lost the internet. Internet explorer opens ok on all pc's but after a few secs returns the familiar "server cannot be found" message. I have tried to ping the static ip address the isp provides and this is flawless it comes right back with 0% loss, can ping the server as well.
The server is happily on line (broadband via rj45 modem) while the second lan on the server feeds a router to all the pc's.
Just for info.....This server happily accepts the remote access and dishes out database info to any connected client that wants it. Is there a setting that could have changed this? IP adresses have not been changed on any machine inc server.
