Cannot connect to FileShares after enabling Win Firewall on SBS200

Hello

A user has been on to his SBS2003 as administrator and turned on the Windows 
Firewall which also enables Internet Connection Sharing (ICS).

Now they cannot access mapped drives or browse the SBS network (but they can 
login and authenticate OK) even though Windows firewall is now turned off on 
the SBS server.

Any ideas on what's gone wrong here and how to fix it?

Hi Tami

That did not work.
I can map and access file shares using the TCP/IP address of the SBS server 
but not the server name - clients cannot find the path.

SBS DNS is working and the event logs do not show any particularly unusual 
errors.

How many NICs in the server??

Port 137 blocked?

That firewall service needs to be turned off, and CEICW needs to be 
re-run to reactivate SBS's built-in features.

What happens if you run \\servername\IPC$ from a freshly rebooted 
workstation?

Simultaneous socket connections. Is there a limit?
My client wants me to write an application that maintains 30 or 40 simultaneous socket connections to different hardware devices. For each device the throughput requirements are very small since only some small packets are sent occasionally at random intervals. Is there a simultaneous limit? 30 or 40 is far more then I have ever done. I don't want any surprises. Is there a limit? I assume XP Professional would handle this. Correct? Would XP Home be any different? My laptop has XP home. To certain incoming ports, its 10, although there are several cracks out their to remove this...

server connect
When I first start up Outlook 2003, it contacts the mail server and everything is hunky-doory. However, when attempting to next access the mail account by the send/receive access or in background, it indicates that it cannot locate the server and gives me error (0x80004210A). This error number is not consistent other than for the 0x800 portion. The location does not change, so how can it find it initially, and not later on? I'm confused. What type of mail server? POP3, IMAP, Exchange, HTTP, Other...? Does the same happen when you disable your firewall and/or virusscanner (integra...

RibbonX Controls and Determining Enabled?

For example, I do not want to set its state in XML and I do not want to change its 'Enabled' property via the callback but, rather, I just want to find out if it is enabled or not. With the old CommandBarButtons, one could call the 'Enabled' property to determine this. Is there some way to determine if a Ribbon control is enabled?

Maintain network connectivity on shutdown?
Hello, we have added a script to run at Windows shutdown and in testing it seems to at least run, but the problem is part of the script process that needs to access a server on our network fails because it appears that network connectivity has been dropped at this point in the shutdown process. Is there any way to set it so that network connectivity is retained on shutdown? For example, if there is still at least IP connectivity (but the WINS service has been shutdown), then could we run something on a command line to invoke the network resource? Any help would be greatly appreci...

Remotely connect to SBS 2003
I'm a little new here. Trying to remotely connect to a SBS2003 server. However, the ISP uses DHCP to assign addresses so every 2 days the external IP changes. How can I connect to the server without asking someone at the office to give me the new external IP all the time? I've already assigned a static IP to the server in the range of 192.168.1.XXX and allowed port 3389 to that address in the router. I can connect fine when I have the correct external IP. Thanks in advance! R. Hi Remi: Welcome..... You should have a static IP address, or a dynamic to static t...
