PS - I just started here recently and inherited everything without the last person's information...

What OS is the backup server and other PCs running?

What does "can't access internet" mean? Web browsing? PING? No route?

Why is your backup server trying to access the Internet?

Guess: Check the gateway and firewall settings.

I presume that your workstations that are able to connect to the Internet for web surfing are running Windows 2000.

This sounds like incorrect network settings on the backup server, or a firewall blocking access.

Make sure the backup server has the correct gateway specified to the Internet and the correct DNS server.
