What, if any, error messages are you getting?

Just an FYI but if this server is part of a LAN, I'd recommend not leaving it hanging out on the internet without putting it in a DMZ or behind a decent firewall. You'll notice I said "decent firewall"......keep in mind I'm very much aware that windows has a built in firewall and understand that I don't consider that adequate protection.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

i had the same problem. i fixed it by changing the dns to the windows 2003 server ip address as follows:

start | settings | control panel | network connection | (right click) properties | internet protocol tcp/ip | general | use the following dns server address

i was up and running immediately.

hope this helps.
