Hello,

Yesterday I installed security updates and rebooted my server.  Today my mapped network drive is disconnected and I can not use remote desktop to access the machine anymore.  I can still ping the machine.  What else can I check?  I already rebooted my workstation and the server.

I can remote desktop from the server to my machine but not the other way around.

When I click start run and type \\192.x.x.x\ It comes back with an error


Windows cannot find \\192.x.x.x\.  Check spelling and try again

But when i do ping server ip or ping server name it works fine.  tracert works fine also.

Did the security update turn the firewall on?

arg.  I figured it out. about a week ago we put the server on a different subnet.  The windows firewall was configured to allow traffic on "my subnet only"  .  It has been working fine for over a week though.  I think you must be right.  The security updates must of enabled the firewall because everything worked fine yesterday.

Thanks
