Forefront tmg not working correctly

I can't seem to get acces to my forefront tmg server.
it was working correctly but i can't ping my server from the outside.
I do have internet access trough my public ip adress.
vpn and ftp are not working either because of this.
Is there a way to quickly discover the problem?

you can't get in because TMG is doing what it's supposed to be doing - blocking all traffic with the exception of what is configured.

Now if you have configured it to allow VPN and PING etc but you still can't get to it, then in all likelyhood, the service has crashed (which it can do) and the only way you're getting in to the TMG is from the LAN side or from the console.

firewall is turned off!
i don't get it
Check to see if the server has rebooted recently.  I've seen this before that following a reboot, the firewall service didn't start up.

Last time I saw it, it took two days before we realised.  Users were complaining about a problem that we denied existed...a large piece of humble pie had to be eaten when we found the problem :)
You will have to configure system policy to enable managment like ICMP (ping), web management, MMC etc.
