updates don't install IPX. You had to deliberatly add that Netware protocol.

do you have a netware server?

Not being able to ping the server can be simply the firewall blocking it.
did you enagage RDP on the server so you can remotely admin it?
though we use MMC to do AD administration.

Yes, I have enable RDP.

The firewall can not open, it come the error message : "windows firewall cannot run because another program or service is runing that might use the network address translatin component (ipnat.sys)"

windows firewall can not open, it shows "Windows Firewall Cannot Run Because Another Program Or Service Is Running That Might Use The Network Address Translation Component (Ipnat.sys).

I also check from event viewer, under system, there are some error:

service control manager 7023
IPNATHLP 32009
TermServDevices 1111
Netlogon 5722

Ip Routing Enabled ............................ : Yes
should be set to no since it doesn't appear this server has a second nic nor from the ip settings are you routing thru the server.

there is no netbios over tcp/ip showing as enabled. It should be.

how does this relate to your ipx message? Have you removed ipx from the list of protocols on the server?

Hi wanderer, I use Regedt32.exe to check the registry key value for IPEnableRouter, value Data is 0, how come IP Routing shows enable?

Now I realise this problem is nothing to do with ipx message, I'm still new in server area. I believe there is something block the internet access from client to server, but I can not find out where is the block thing...firewall also can not open...

question that needs to be answered is how did you enable ip routing. Using ICS or RRAS?

Since you are new to server I would suspect ICS.

Do the OPPOSITE of this article snippit
How to Configure the ICS Host Computer
The ICS host computer provides a connection through the second network adapter to the existing TCP/IP network. Log on as member of the Administrators group to set up the ICS host computer.
1.Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Network Connections.
2.Right-click Local Area Connection (the network card that you just installed), and then rename it The Internet Connection.

In the Network and Dial-up Connections dialog box, two connections are displayed (for different network adapters): The Internet Connection and Local Area Connection.
3.Right-click The Internet Connection, and then click Properties.
4.Click the General tab, and then verify that Client for Microsoft Networks and Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) are displayed.
5.Click the Advanced tab, and then click to select the Enable Internet Connection Sharing for this Connection check box.

NOTE: Make sure that firewall software or other Internet sharing software from any third-party manufacturer have been removed.
6.Click OK, and then return to the desktop.
