After Installing RRAS LAN Clients Cannot Map Drives or Browse to Server

I have configured RRAS role using the SBS Wizard so I don't see how something could have been configured wrong.

Once I configured the RRAS Service LAN clients could no longer access shared drives. The \\server\share does not work. I cannot browse through My Network Places to the server.

Mapped Drives are showing disconnected

\\server\share take about 15 second to yields the error network path not found

While trying to browse through the Network Places I receive an error that I do not have permission to the resources.

I have removed RRAS but there is still an issue

I forgot to mention that ping responses are successful by name, IP and FQDN.

Since you have removed RRAS neither of the following should be an issue, but if you would like to check:

-Can you access a share by IP such as 192.168.16.123\Share ?
-If not, in the RRAS console (if still enabled) under general, make sure NAT/basic firewall is not installed. If present right click on it and choose delete
-If you can access using an IP,
 -a) go to control panel | network connections | on the menu bar advanced | advanced settings | adapters and bindings | move your LAN network adapter to the top of the list
 -b) open the DNS management console | right click on server name and choose properties | interfaces | add the IP of your LAN adapter ONLY. Remove any others, at least as a test. Then on PC and server run ipconfig /flushdns  from a command line

-always a good idea with networking issues to re-run the CEICW (server management | | internet and e-mail | connect to the Internet |

The issue was Symantec Endpoint protection. It was not on the latest MR version and disabling Symantec resolved the issue.
