Remote access just stopped working
Posted on 2006-11-10
I have 2 servers that both run windows server 2003.
1) One had remote access working fine until about a week ago. Now it times out and say that the RPC isn't up. The first thing I did was to check the firewall, and it isn't even installed. The person who I took over the job for unisntalled it. I also noticed on the DHCP server that is requesting a ton of IP addresses as RAS. I tried to set the server as a reserve and that didn't work. I want to know how to fix the remote access so I can log on again and how do I set it to get one IP address (IE: like win XP pro does with RA)?
2) The second server is running windows server 2003 web edition. I cant even get RA to work on that one. I have turned off the firewall (which seems to not have been installed correctly in the first place and I have to reinstall it later) and I have set it to allow RA under system properties and the remote tab. This server will be the web server (hence the reason why it has web edition on it) and will need to gain access to change content on the page. How do I set it up to allow me to gain access via remote access? And how would I go about making the site it will house on it (DotNetNuke website at that) visible from the outside world (IE: nameofpc.domain.com)?
