    I'm running a SBS2003 (STD) server that up until
    yesterday was allowing my client computers the ability to
    browse the internet via the Dial-up (modem) connection on
    my server (ICW). For some reason the server is now the
    only system that can still browse the internet, all the
    workstations now timeout and are unable to browse. I've
    re-run internet connection wizard and still get the same
    result. I don't understand what may
    have changed. help??

    The config layout is as follows:
    Workstations running XP Pro SP1
    Workstations are on DHCP
    Workstations DNS points to Server
    Server ISP dial-up is Earthlink (dhcp)
    Server is also setup with pop mail conector which is
    working correctly.

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in
    adavance for any help.

    In order for the clients to be able to browse out, the dial up connection
    must be iniated by Routing and Remote Access.

    If you go to control panel/network connections on the server, is there a
    dial up connection that is showing connected?

    If so, right click on it and disconnect it.

    Then go to Routing and Remote Access under Administrator Tools
    Go to Ip Routing, then General
    To the right, you should see a Small Business Dial Up connection.
    Right click on it and choose connect.

    Once it connects, the clients should be able to browse.
