I have successfully joined a new Windows Server 2003 R2 server to the domain but can neither successfully ping nor terminal serve to this server. The server can ping the Active Directory server and its is listed in DNS. What gives?

Does it recognizes the machines' names?
When you do:
nslookup somemachine
Do you get some result?
Can you ping IP's?

Is the new server able to ping anything on the network?

Joined server to domain successfully. Confirmed that new server can ping domain. Checked DNS and the server's IP are in the Host listing in our domain. Attempted to Terminal Serve to the server-- no luck.
Pinging it from workstations w/I the domain results in a timeout on the request.

This server can sucessfully ping every other server in the domain either by host name or IP; however, none of the other servers including the AD server or workstations can ping the server by IP or Host name. Message returned: "Request timed out." Weird! I have 8 servers all of which are either 2003 (7) or 2008 (2) and I have never seen this issue before.

You get the gold star. For the life me... a guess I remain a network Neophite and was lucky in setting up so many other servers w/O awareness as to a simple thing like "Firewall" settings on a NIC... Oiyh! Thanks so much!
