Our webserver which is located in our office on a windows 2000 server. and its going down for outside users. our networking guy told me this:
I figured out the issue with the site and why its sporadically going down. The issue is that the server is hooked up via 2 lines. One for internal LAN and one on the DMZ. There seems to be some conflict because there are two lines hooked up to one server. The problem is that I need to have the LAN connection because some of the backend depends on this connection as well as for backup. The site seems to work without problems when I disable the LAN connection but the backend does not fully function.

I checked the Event Viewer for errors and I get the following error every couple of hours:

 Event ID 8032

The browser service has failed to retrieve the backup list too many times on transport \Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{DA990E17-7D88-4DEC-B588-2898F8D79F1C}. The backup browser is stopping.


Im fairly sure the above error is the cause for the downtime. Any idea on how to fix this particular issue?
