I am getting an error message on WIndows Server 2003 SP2, that will tell me "Windows Firewall connot run becuase another program is currently running. Any suggestions how to find what may be running?

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

You might need to disable de Routing and Remote Access Service (RRAS) in order to make the firewall work, as it uses the Network Address Translation component.

    At the risk of being too obvious, has a third-party firewall firewall been installed? Don't forget to look for any host firewalling that may be taking place by your anti-virus program.

    No, no other firewall has been installed yet. Still setting up the initial server. The error message said " WiIndows Firewall cannot run because another program or service is running that might use the network address translation components (IPrat.sys)

    That's what I thought. I guess you will need to disable the RRAS as suggested in the answer (not only stop it, but disable it).
