This sounds like a firewall issue.
Check your firewall or temporary stop the service.

Yes, and if you have Norton IS, you'll maybe have to uninstall it completely as disabling it, sometimes just isn't enough.

Did you try to reboot the server in 'Last known good configuration'?

WE have had this happen several times when the IPSEC service hung on starting.  To fix we disabled the IPSEC service, restarted the server and saw that network connectivity worked as expected.  We then set the IPSEC service to automatic again and manually started it and then rebooted the server again.  Everything worked fine after that. Seemed to correspond to a problem after running Windows updates.

Thanks bas2754, after digging further I found that the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\IPSec\Local was missing.  To rebuilt run regsvr32 polstore.dll from Start - Run on the server and it rebuilds the local IPSec policy.
