Cannot map network drives after accedental shutdown of a Win2003 server

We can not map any network drives after windows 2003 server accedentely rebooted.  We also cannot print to share printers.  If i go to the server i can map a drive and print.  But i cannot map a drive nor print from the client machines(WIn XP, VISTA and Win 7)

HI,
Symantec network protection was blocking the network connection.  As soon as i stop the only network protection, I was able to access network drive and printers.

what role is the server? DC or Print Sever, both, File server. I would check firewall and sharing settings. Are you using a domain or enterprise admin to do things, like map the network drives, on the client machine. Do the drives have permission to domain users to connect to.  I would look at those things.

If you can map them locally but not remotely, check the firewall.

The server has network access out after this problem?
If not, may be a problem with ipsec didn't start because of a port conflict.
