I just installed Win2k3 on a new box and there is no Windows Firewall or Security Center, and no Security Configuration Wizard in the Add/Remove Windows components.

Any suggestions?

Yes, because Win2k3 firewall is defined in Routing and Remote access services in Administrative tools. You may have to enable Routing and RAS with Internet wizard to install it.

I tried enabling Routing and RAS, choosing "NAT and Basic Firewall". It succesfully enabled and started the service,  but neither the Windows Firewall nor the Security Center appeared in the Control Panel.

Other ideas?

Well, it is because these panels are not included in Win2k3 server.

Is there a way to conclusively demonstrate that there is a firewall operating? Is there a service to check?

yes of course, you can define which services are open in properties of external interface in Routing and RAS. you can check port 25 for instance. and the service behind is the kernel driver called ipnat.sys
