Have a server i didn't set up originally.  10 workstations connected threw a hub then server.  they all can get on the internet but no connectivity to the intranet.  Printers, ect.  Sever is runnning 2003.  Not that  educated in server OS.  Workstations and small networking yes.  what could be the issue?  Where to start?  Oh, they recently moved the sever hardware and have had issues ever sense.  Also, it sometimes works and sometimes it doesn't?  Printing to the networked printer can see it but no movement.  Sorry to be so short on info but will be working on it this afternoon.    

Hey, Thanks in advance for any direction you can give me.

Are they really using a hub?  Get a switch please.

Are they using a switch?  Try (a) a temporary switch replacement to test and (b) a factory reset of the existing switch.

Disconnect the Server from the workstations, log on to Windows Update and do all the Windows Updates to the Server. Then do a full and orderly shutdown. Now start the Server and make sure all services (particularly DHCP and network services) have started properly.

Start there. Just moving a server should not break it.

Try enabling Internet connection sharing option in Server 2003 and check. You will get this setting in LAN settings, and Firewall settings,

Try disabling windows firewall.

Hi Jeremy.

Can you do an
ipconfig /all >C:\IPCONFIG.TXT 

Open in new window

and post here please.

Make sure your DNS on your workstations points to the server.
Is your Default gateway connected to the Hub/Switch?
Is IIS running on the server?
