We have an older Win2000 server that runs telemetry, polling legacy sites and sending out email/text messages to the appropriate people. This was initially isolated behind its own firewall. Not really sure why, it was set up that way years ago and worked fine that way. Said firewall went under last week, causing the server to have to be brought into the fray with our other machines. I am having a strange problem that I couldn't seem to find any precedent for in my troubleshooting search.
This server can be accessed within the network via RDC and can be pinged successfully, but cannot be "seen" by any of the other terminals in its workgroup via My Network Places, nor can it "see" any of the terminals from its end.
IIS is running on the server and has port 801 open for hosting the site. The local machine is running the site just fine. However, if I attempt to run the site from a workgroup computer via http://192.168.0.40:801
, I get nothing. Further, I get nothing when attempting to access port 801 through our public ip address so this is a not strictly limited to LAN. I cannot seem to find evidence of any firewall software running on the server that would run interference on port availability...
Also, our SQL Mail service seems to have stopped as well. This (I believe) is supposed to be handled through STMP via port 25? I thought that these two problems were independent of one another but would like some feedback on this as well.
