We've just installed a new Windows 2003 server onto our Small Business Server network. The server is set up as a file server (via the roles assignment). From the server we can ping the SBS server (which runs DNS, etc). We can also access computers across the network, open files, save files, etc. Internet connection via SBS server is working. Basically, no problems working outward from the server.
Problem is that we can't access the new server from any other computer or server on the network. It shows up okay in view entire network, but when you click on the server name you get:
\\servername is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource... The network path was not found.
Can't ping it either.
Basically it doesn't seem to be refusing inbound connections. Which I guess is something to do with the locked down way that Windows 2003 comes out of the box.
Now aside from some superficial knowledge, my networking and Windows server skills are non-existent (we are a small business), so what I need is a step-by-step answer as to how to resolve this.
