windows firewall

I work at a hosting company where a Windows Server 2003 customer has accidentally modified the computer and now he(or anyone) can't ping or remote desktop to it.  I have logged in locally and disable Microsoft Firewall and Microsoft ISA services but it's still not letting in remote traffic.

I can ping outward and visit websites fine.

Can anyone recommend a place to start for getting it to working order again?

I used Administrative Tools -> Services Manager to stop the Microsoft firewall, but also the Windows firewall is not running either.

I think my last post might be confusing, so here is another way of saying it.

Microsoft firewall: off
Windows firewall: off

Hi all,

Jay, fyi, Microsoft Firewall and Windows Firewall actually are 2 different services. M$ FW is ISA's built-in FW service, whereas Windows FW is the OS's built-in FW.

Anyway, if both are turned off, I don't see any reason why incoming traffic should be blocked... Strange behavior indeed. Let me investigate and I'll let you know.

Cheers

He said he was configuring ISA when it happened.  Can you give me the steps to uninstall ISA?

Also in case it helps, there were three services that said ISA in them, and I turned them all off.

The customer actually told me how to fix it.  I went to Add/Remove Programs and removed the one dealing with ISA services.  Thanks for the help!
