How to allow Ping on SBS Server???

dawber39 asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-08
I have a server running SBS 2003

The only thing running on this machine is an IIS FTP service. It uses the directory access security within IIS Manager to allow only certain IP addresses access. There is no firewall active - even the windows firewall says it cannot start because another service or program is running that is using IPNAT -  All of the clients accessing the site do so through a proxy server - making it accessible only through the one IP address. When the client site tries to ping the SBS server - they get a request timed out.

I was requested to allow them to ping the server so that when they experience any difficulty - they can easily tell if my site is live. - Is there a way for me to enable it so they can ping it from this address?  I have looked over the network adapter configurations - but I do not know if I am looking in the right direction. Any help would be appreciated
