Looking for the conflict

By mr_t_wright ·
I was configuring a server for active directory and before that time I could acces the server03 with no problem, now I can not. Well during start up while the network connections are being applied/prepared/opened I can ping the server, but after the "applying computer settings portion at start up I can no longer ping the server. Can someone shed some light?

Some light

more info required.

when can you not access the server? during startup? entering a user name and password?

or are you just pinging the server during startup and after the firewall initializes you can no longer ping?

I hate wasting electricity. Ping is a great tool, but one that seems to be utilized waaaay to much! Like you said most firewalls worth their spit will block ping, but I have spent waaay too much time with help requests that start with, "Can't ping..."

You may want to disable widnows server 2003's built in firewall as a test to see if that is the issue, if so you may need to reconfigure the settings int he firewall.
