Problems pinging Windows Server 2003

All of the PCs in my local network cannot ping Windows Server 2003, and none of the server's resources can be contacted. Even the ISA 2004 services are disabled. What should I do?

You can check the Event Viewer to look for any errors on either the server or client, and check the Windows Firewall settings on Windows Server 2003. You can also run a packet sniffer like Network Monitor or Ethereal to determine how network traffic is being transmitted to and from your server, and if any packets are being dropped or otherwise blocked.
