I have installed Windows Server 2003 R2 32-bit Standard Edition and given access to clients, but the clients cannot access the application server. I have the following software installed: Oracle 10g, Hp Quality center 9.0 HP Quick Test professional 9.2 SAP GUI 7.10 SAP TAO 1.0.10.7 Microsoft Office. The set up is something like this. We have an Apple Mac Pro server, and we have partitioned the disk into two. One partition has Mac OS X 10.5 and the other partition is using Windows Server 2003. I am not able to ping the server from clients, but the server can ping clients. Is this the right behavior? And how can I manage the network load on Windows 2003? How can I give full access to all the applications to the clients on this server?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Are the clients allowed to access your domain to connect to the server or are they trying to access from a local station?

——————————

If the server can ping to the clients and your clients can’t ping to the server, the server firewall is blocking the port(s).

You can either turn the firewall off or set exceptions for the applications you need access to.

in improving on mshen response;

you should also find out if some of the server’s configs are well done to allow what you are anticipating for, eg check its firewall configs – though its advisable to turn on the firewall but check on the ‘exceptional programs’ radio button to at least allow the clients access the server. the dhcp config should also be well done
for the problem may be elevating from this.

    You need to check about your dhcp status on you that particular nods. May be that client not able to get ip from it's relative dhcp server. Due to this issue it would be out of your domain. For more information please visit at: http://www.iyogi.net
