2k3 = 192.168.16.3
sbs = 192.168.16.2
gateway = 192.168.16.1



okay so I added a member server last week and installed a payroll package on it (think adp).  Added "file server" to its list of services and shared out the "payroll" folder.  added everyone who is going to use this software to both the sharing/permissions and  security tabs with "full" on every option.

last week when i did this everything was fine.  installed the client package on a workststion, mapped the P: drive to the "payroll" folder by browsing the network. launched the program and it connected to the server application data hosted in the "payroll" folder

now this week i cannot browse this machine over the network from any computer under any of the accounts setup with permissions (including the administrator account).  Windows firewall is off and my mcafee total protection service firewall is also turned off.

i cannot ping from the sbs to payroll or vice versa by name or ip.  i cant even ping google.com but i can browse it with ie

im not sure where to even begin. please help

I would check to make sure you statically assigned an IP address to the server instead of using dhcp. I would then check firewall settings, both windows and hardware. I would then check ISA settings on the SBS server.

Also check physical connections to make sure noone unplugged the box by accident.

I forgot that mcafee total protection had installed a firewall on this server.  the icon was not showing up on the tray for some reason so i forgot about it.  reinstalled mcafee without the firewall and now everything is gravy
