Cannot access server

hi;
I have recently setup a server in remote site.Static IP is assigned but two to three times in a day a strange thing happens, locally in the site the users can access the server, but from remote branch i cannot access it so i have to login via users PC and by initiating remote connection to server change the IP to a new IP then i am able to access it. Please let me know if you have any idea why a server can be accessed locally but not remotely if the IP is changed it only work for two or three hours then again i have to change it back.What can be the problem?
Thanks

Hi,

is the IP address set to be static on the server? If it is and it's changing anyway, take a look at scheduled tasks if there is some script or .bat file scheduled to change the IP to something different.
If you are getting this IP from DHCP server - this is definetly wrong and you should change it to static.

Hi;
No schedule is specified, and also server IP is static.
What network devices are exactly between the server's NIC and the IP address to which you are connecting remotely?

I have firewall and switch between the server and modem i am getting internet connection from.I am using a private IP. I can access the clients PCs from there i can access the server but i cannot access the server directly. But when i am changing the server IP then i can access the server for short time only, again it stops responding and i have to login via client PC and change the IP to a new IP address.It is very strange. If the problem is with NIC driver first then obviously i may not be able to access it from client PCs and i have installed the latest driver from DEll.
Thanks
