Greetings SBSers,
I'm installing my latest SBS2003R2 box (HP ML350G5) and all was well until I tried to join a Workstation to the domain. Workstation is a new HP DX2300 dual core box with XP, only thing I have done is uninstall Norton AV and Office 2007. SBS2003R2 has SP2 and ISA2004 SP3. ISA2004 IS running so I'm not suspecting any of the related SBS2003 SP2 problems (unless told otherwise)

If I try to connect using http://servername/connectcomputer I get "Page cannot be displayed" and "Cannot find Server or DNS error". I can resolve the server name using ping -a and nslookup. I did try to join the domain manually (just to see what happened, I know the wizzards are important) and I got an RPC call failoed message.

I've looked up various boards but can't get any usefull info. I have seen that there si some issue with an RPC filter in ISA2004 relating to the above SP application order. I can't find the RPC filter in ISA either on this box or on my operational unit.

Can anyone tell me how move forward I was supposed to be delivering this today but now its a late night sort out. I'll be eternally gratefull. Below are my config /all captures for both Server and work station.
