Inbound Connections Drop
Posted on 2006-11-20
I am having a bit of trouble with inbound connections when the server is first started and when it is left idle for a while.
When this trouble occurs the server seems to refuse all incoming connections including ping but outbound will still work. However as soon as I log in to the server and open something such as internet explorer and accesses the internet all of the inbound connections will start working.
I have this on two servers so I imagine it must be quite common but I just can not find anything on google that relates to my problem so I would really appreciate any help.
At the moment I have set the server to run a scheduled task to run a constant ping when the machine starts up so that the network activates and stays online.
