I have a 2003 Small Business Server.  I recentally had to reinstall IIS and the FTP servers.  Right after I reinstalled them we weren't having any issues in fact the ftp was running faster then ever before.  The system installed some automatic updates.  After these updates no one could see our website externally.  I have already tried removing the updates and that has not resolved the problem.  The werid thing is I can type in our website address on the server it self and the website comes up fine.  I know the server is able to view other webpages just fine on the internet. I am able to ping other servers from this server.  But it will not allow a ping in to the server it self.  Any help on this would be greatly appreicated.

Sounds like a firewall setting. Try to disable the firewall and run some tests.

I currently do not have a firewall on the actual system.  I have one on the router.  When I try ping internally I get a request timed out error.  I have tried access the server with it's internal ip address in internet explorer and it comes up with http:///.

I also have this sever listed as a DMZ.

SBS 2003 has a built in "firewall". You need to run the Firewall wizard from the Server Management screen to control it (enable/disable).

Are you able to run that wizard and solve the issue?

I have figured this out.  The system had several updates.  A couple of them said the update could not be removed.  I went ahead and removed them and solved the problem.  Thanks for everybody's help.
