    Can't get companyweb via port 80

    I just installed SBS 2003 in our office and some PCs can get companyweb and
    some can't. I think it is something to do with the connect computer routine -
    it worked on some PCs and not others - they are all running Windows XP
    professional. All the PCs in the office can get onto sharepoint via port 444
    (servername/remote) but its much slower doing it that way and you have to
    keep retyping your password. I can't get http://companyweb on my own personal
    PC and I can't ping companyweb either. I have set up the default gateway and
    WINS as the server's internal IP address. Anyone got any idea about how to
    fix this? I have been looking through lots of forums but can't find anything.
    Many thanks! Cheers Karl

    You are correct that the computers that were able to run connectcomputer can
    and those that couldn't can't. I would concentrate my troubleshooting
    efforts on why I can't run connectcomputer on those pc's. Perhaps disable
    the MS Firewall. How many pc's are you talking about here? Try this. Go to
    ne of those pc's that can't run connectcomputer. Remove it from the domain.
    Refresh AD then recreate the computer account and then try connectcomputer.

    Sounds like a DNS issue. Can you post an ipconfig /all from your PC and the
    SBS server?

    Short story is that your PCs should be pointing to your SBS (and only your
    SBS) for DNS resolution. If they are using a local router (or worse yet,
    your ISP's servers) for DNS, then you won't be able to ping companyweb
    because Windows won't be able to resolve the name to the IP of your SBS.
    Ideally, PCs would be configured to obtain IP addresses via DHCP, and SBS
    would be acting as your DHCP server (instead of a local router).

    Dear Chad,
    Many thanks for your message!
    Here is an IP Config/all from my computer (top) and the server, the server's
    internal IP address is 192.168.1.15 and that's what my computer has its DNS
    server and default gateway set to, that's right isn't it?
    Talk to you soon!
    Cheers Karl

    Dear Allen,
    Many thanks for your message!
    Yes, that worked - I don't know if it was disabling the firewall or deleting
    and adding it to active directory, and I've tried it about 10 times before
    and it didn't work, but it worked now so that's great, many thanks!

    Re: Can't get companyweb via port 80

    Both of your network cards in the server are in the same subnet
    (192.168.1.x), which will definitely cause some routing issues.

    For a dual-nic setup in SBS, each NIC should be in a completely different
    subnet. So, what you want to do is to change the internal IP address of
    your router to a different private subnet (e.g. 192.168.0.1), change the
    external NIC on your SBS to be in the same subnet (e.g. 192.168.0.2), then
    re-run the CEICW on the SBS box.

    Note that with a standard dual-nic setup on SBS, generally speaking the
    external NIC is the only thing connected to the LAN side of your router
    (unless you're using that as a DMZ). All your PCs & LAN devices are
    connected to your switch, along with the SBS server's LAN NIC. The result
    is the SBS box is physically sitting between the LAN & the internet.

    However, you an install SBS with a single NIC configuration, where your
    router is in the same subnet as your LAN (like it is now), but you connect
    the LAN side of your router to your switch. To use this setup, rerun the
    CEICW on your SBS and select the option for "My server uses a single network
    card" . . . after the CEICW completes successfully, you can then disable
    the 2nd NIC in your SBS.

    Either setup will work just fine, just your current configuration with dual
    NICs in the same subnet is going to cause issues.
