Hi all, trust you are well.

If i look in Routing and Remote Access I can see our "Small Business Broadband" Connection, but yet under "Connect To" is doesnt display there?

Microsoft Small Business Server 2003, Not Using ISA.

Any ideas?

Thanks
Sean

Hi SeanNij,

What do you mean by sbs broadband? you WAN connection?
connect to > show all connections should give you your network cards, the lan connection, or vpn connections on the clients

Cheers!

so you have 2 network cards? 1 ofr the LAN, and one for the WAN?
You should see the 2 NIC's, unless one of them doesn't have the right drivers.
Look into the device manager, do you see the two NIC's there?

Nope one nic. Its a PPPOE dialup connection. Normally it shows - but in this case its "hidden"

if i do an ipconfig /all i can also see it listed there.

Did you create this dialup connection?
You saw it befor in a non-hidden state?
What do you see in the device manager > show hidden devices?
Do you see it with 'show hidden files and folders' on?

SenNij,

Just so that we aren't confused by your question... please be very specific about what you are asking.

For instance... you say, "If i look in Routing and Remote Access I can see our "Small Business Broadband" Connection".  

Where EXACTLY are you seeing this in RRAS?

Then, what do you see when you look at "Connect To" (which I'm assuming is your Network Connections)?

Under network Interfaces in Routing and Remote access i can see "Small Business Broadband Connection" - together with Server Local Area Connection, Loopback.

Under Start/Connect To (Network Connections) I can only see Local Area Network Connection.

Okay, then that's your problem... if you only have ONE NIC, then you should NOT have "Network Interfaces" listed below Routing and Remote Access.

Did you at one time have a second NIC on this server?

Yup  - there was once a second NIC - client moved offices and the connection change to ADSL dialup.

Well, that second NIC was never uninstalled properly.  It's needs to be removed from the Network Interfaces in the Device Manager.
