Ok got a rather wierd one here !
win 2000 server untouched suddenly stops working. nobody can access emails or internet
Replace router same issue
If the server is plugged into the router i can get any internet on my laptop connected directly to the router.
I have now dual NIc in the server to try and solve the problem new nic is on the router but still it affects the internet.
When plugged into the router it looks like its chattering conatantley but when on the LAN the network works fine
Yesterday when the sevrer was rebooted after setting everybody up for the new settings whilst the server was booting people were getting mail and internet but then something kicked in and disabled all out going ports !!
please help been like this for 3 days !
