SBS 2003 - Internet Radio kills access to internet for other users

    I recently upgraded to Windows SBS 2003. When users are listening to Internet
    Radio stations, other users are unable to access the internet. Once the users
    disconnect from the radio stations, access to the internet is available
    again.

    On the old version of SBS, this was not an issue. Is there a setting that I
    may have overlooked when setting up the new SBS server?

    My network hardware has remain unchanged. The client workstations are the
    same. The only thing that changed is the new (more powerful) server and the
    new SBS software.

    Thank You

  2. Is connectivity *entirely* gone or is it just slow? Can they ping anything
    outside the LAN?
    Are you using Premium with ISA?

    I tend to discourage streaming media access as it kills bandwidth and isn't
    an essential business function for most companies.

  3. 2003 or 2008?

    And what is your firewall and network topology.

    Unless you installed the SBS 2003 firewall, available with SBS Premium,
    there is nothing about SBS that would do this.

    You've left out a lot of information:

    1) What firewall are you using?

    2) What speed of service do you have for internet?

    3) What specific version of SBS?

    4) Can users connect to anything on the internet or is "unable to access
    the internet" limited to some areas?

    Yes ... they can ping on the outside so the internet connection is still
    there, it is just very slow.

    I am NOT using premium w/ ISA.

    The network topology is relatively flat. There are only about 20 users.
    going through a firewall and a router and on to the internet.

  6. OK. Then your server upgrade can't have anything to do with this. What's
    your Internet connection exactly?

    I still say this needs to be made a company policy issue.
