SOLVED: New router, now Windows 2003 File Server no longer accessible??

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,

Big problem I was hoping you could help me out with. Moved a bunch of things at the office, and I fried our old router by connecting one of the wrong adaptors to it (brilliant I know). Anyway, I connected a new router and everything works fine except for our file server. It is connected to the network but you can't access its files from any of the other computers. Also, i cant access the internet from the file server now or see the other computers. File server is running windows server 2003.

I would be tremendously grateful for any help you could give, I assume it's router settings that have to be configured but that's above myknowledge level.

OK,

What are you internal IP addresses of the file server and the subnet vs your IP's of the client machines.

I think you've probably set a static IP and had the router give out a different DHCP range to it's Clients etc. That would also explain why you can't get to the internet from your FS.

Okay guys, here are the settings of the router (the server is called server2003):

700
197

ipconfig readout for the server:

450

ipconfig for my machine which is visible in the workgroup:

320

Don't know if this is relevant but the server was acting as a file server and it had vpn setup for remote access with dyndns updater. updater doesn't work without internet access now though.

I think it's going to have something to do with your VPN settings. You're going to need to check those purely because that's where the issue is going ot be.

You're on your own with that though, i've only ever done VPN settings using cisco.

You've also got IP routing and wins proxy enabled on your W2k3 server

On one of the workstations ping server2003 and see what is returned

paste a screenshot of the results

Okay here is my ping results

271

The only functionality I need is as a file server. Also, the dynamic list of DHCP clients changes in router settings, I guess this is normal?

Also in the list of dynamic DHCP clients on router it had listed SERVER2003 as having assigned ip 192.1680.15 so i pinged that address, my results:

165

OK, does the server have any other network ports?

try running the following commands

ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
ping 192.168.0.1

If it doesn't work post another screenshot of ipconfig /all
