Hello, i have installed a new server 2003 standard, but after a week or so, i found that server can ping all clients but clients cannot connect server. I have disabled firewall of clients but cannot disable firewall of server because it does not open, it says that some "services are used by users that might use NAT". i have emptied my event log to avoide any chance of failure. does it really due to firewall ?? my server is also a dhcp server and sucessfully given ip to client and even can take remote desktop of clients.

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

when it comes to ping issues, its definetely the firewall.

about “services are used by users that might use NAT”, i believe that in some instance there is still a nat logs or nat translation on your device which disables you to access some of its tabs.

    The firewall's problem could be due to the RRAS service being enabled. Take a look at this question.
