SBS2003 Client computers can't access internet

Its a small network. SBS 2003 server, 2 LAN PPPoE internet on one, local on the other. It was setup and working fine until a power out and it wouldn't boot, requiring a motherboard replacement to fix.

With new motherboard, Windows started right up, not even asking to be re-activated. The server gets on the internet just fine. The clients can access the server shares just fine. The clients can browse companyweb just fine, but no external addresses. It will say waiting for site and eventually give the page cannot be displayed message.

TRACERT run from a client finds the web sites IP address but after the first hop to the SBS server the requests time out. It looks like SBS is blocking the internet, but where, how?

I ran through the internet setup wizard, everything looks as it should, it reconfigures, but still no access.

Make sure your Routing and Remote Access is started. I have seen SBS servers run the ICW fine, but the service was not started, or RAS was not configuring correctly. If not setup RAS manualy, or deleting the Config from within RAS, restarting the serive and running the ICW again

Funny thing. I went on site to check RAS and it was working. The client assumed I fixed it yesterday. So thanks for the suggestion, if it happens again I'll know where to look.

It fixed itself, but thanks for the quick and probably correct answer.
