SBS2003 Standard single NIC no internet
Posted on 2011-10-12
I've been head scratching for most of today with this one so I (and the the customer) will be delighted if anyone can help.
I have and SBS2003 standard server with SP2 and all patches.
The server history is not completely known to me.
The single NIC is connected to a PPPoE router with its own public IP address.
Router is Netgear WGR614 v9.
The router has its DHCP server turned off
I have run the Email and Internet connection wizard successfully (originally had some issues but these were resolved by rebuilding the DNS forward and reverse lookup zones.
I can join a workstation to the domain using the connectcomputer wizard.
I can not browse the internet on the server nor on the joined workstation.
I can not browse the internet on my laptop (not on domain) which is connected to the router directly.
If I detach the server from the network, start the dhcp server on the router and ensure ipconfig /release and /refreshis run, then I can browse the internet on the workstation and my laptop which is attached to the router.
Stopping the router DHCP server and pluggingthe server backin stops me and the other domain workstation from browsing the internet.
One other issue is that the command prompt does not stay as a commed shell, it just flashes on the screen and disappears. so I can't do ipconfig /all >g:\file.txt soI can't paste here.
I have followed normal NIC setup procedure IE:
TCP/IP properties for the NIC are
IP address : 192.168.1.248
Subnet mask : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway : 192.168.1.1 (router address)
Primary DNS : 192.168.1.248 (Server NIC)
Ec DNS : blank
When I run theSBS Int. Connection Wizard, I use:
Connection type : Broadband
My server uses : A local router device with and IP address
Pref DNS : 184.108.40.206 (provided by local infrastructure guys)
Alt DNS : 220.127.116.11 (provided by local infrastructure guys)
LocalIP of Router : 192.168.1.1
I get the prompt about Only one network adapter configured for use. . . .firewall cannot be configured . . . warning about unauthorised access, etc. Do you want to view info? I click NO.
Web services Configuration : Allow access to only the following Website services from the internet (and all of the boxes were ticked.
Web Server Certificate : Create a new webserver certificate and I enter server.Domain.co.uk
Internet email : Enable internet email
E-mail delivery methode : Use DNS to route e-mail
E-mail retrieval : Use Exchange (only) and Email delivered directly to server
Email Domain name : domain.co.uk
REmove email attachements : Ticked Enable Exchange server rto remove and ticked all boxes
Then Clicked finished.
The wizard complets fine, but still no internet access on the server or anywhere
Can anyone help please. I'm on site with saw head !!!!
