Computer does not respond to any requests from the internet (EvenPing Requests!)

Discussion in 'Server Setup' started by Kingsley Jarrett, Jan 12, 2005.

  1. Ok, I have Server 2003 up and running. I am trying to provide services
    to internet users but they cannot even ping me.

    My network set up is that all the computers connect to the server which
    connects to the ADSL/DSL modem. The LAN connects through ethernet and so
    does the modem (Got 2 Network Cards). I have bridged the connections and
    I am able to access the internet from the server and the networked
    computers. Under NAT/Basic Firewall in Routing and Remote Access I have
    2 "Interfaces", The 'Lan to Wan Bridge' (The bridge for the Modem and
    LAN) which is set up as a Public interface connected to the internet
    with NAT enabled BUT NOT a basic firewall. Then there is the 'Internal'
    Connection (Which seems pointless) which is set up as Private interface
    connected to private network.

    My network clients (and the server) are able to send and receive data
    (for example Messaging programs and Internet Games) but no one on the
    internet can initiate a connection to us, ping dosen't even respond to
    their requests!

    Hopefully I have given enough infomation for you to help me. If you need
    any more I will be happy to provide. Any help you provide will be
    greatly appreciated.

    Thank You

  2. Thought of some extra info myself:

    - Windows Firewall is OFF
    - I am using SP1
    - My Internet Address is (I use's
    Dynamic Dns Services for my IP address. I have their DUC running in the
    backround and it has made sure my IP address is linked to the domain name)
    - My Modem is a Linksys ADSL2MUE, it has no obvious firewall settings

    Any help you could give is greatly appreciated!

    Thanks Again,
