I am new to networking and servers. I have this problem.
The server 2003 was infected with a worm/virus/trojon?? to the point that it would not boot up...Lots of things was tried to restore the server, but the end result was that the server had to have the OS reloaded.
Connected to this server at the time of the failure was 4 PCs running XP PRO, connected to the domain PMUSTANGGA. I have tried to take one PC back to workstation and it has taken me 2 days to restore all of the user's profile and settings. I cannot do this to the remaining 3 PCs, as they cannot be down for that length of time...each pc contains many applications and specialized software and need to be up ASAP.
What I need is to be able to connect each of the PCs to the server to be able to get to the SQL server 2000 that is there.
I can ping each of the PCs from the server, but I cannot ping the server from any of the PCs.
The network is setup as follows:
All PCs and the server connect to a 10-100 switch and the switch connects to a linksys router which inturn is connected to the netopia modem...DSL through Bellsouth (ISP)
router IP => 192.168.1.1
server IP => 192.168.1.2
PC1 IP => 192.168.1.100
PC2 IP => 192.168.1.101
PC3 IP => 192.168.1.102
PC4 IP => 192.168.1.103
network printer IP => 192.168.1.175
Can someone help me with this problem...I am not sure that the server is correctly configured and will answer your questions as best as I can.
