can't ping windows 2003 server

By ahoyte ·

Can somebody explain to me, why my windows 2003 server can ping machines on the network but the machines can't ping or see the server. It was working until I installed active directory and dhcp. does the dns have any thing to with it?. although I have uninstalled the dns, dhcp and active directory I still can't access the server from the other machines.

can't access?

by FlemmingInc. In reply to can't ping windows 2003 s ...

What do you mean you "can't access the 2003 server"? Is it only the ping that is not working, or have you got no access what so ever?
Sorry to ask this, but since you removed AD are your workstations and your server in the same workgroup?
And have you tried deactivating the 2003 servers firewall?
