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.

 



Software/Hardware used:
win server 2003
