  • Domain Controller can't receive inbound pings

    (Sorry for the re-post)


    I can ping everything from the domain server but it doesn't show up on any ping sweeps from client machines.

    Also, the firewall service is off but can't be turned on. It says that there is another service using it. Is that normal?

    Is the server running RRAS?

      Re: Domain Controller can't receive inbound pings

      First link I clicked on when researching RRAS

      "N.B. The default RRAS Policy is to Deny users access. This a failsafe mechanism so that no-one can access the RAS server until the administrator has configured the server (or knows what they are doing!)."


      I'll look into this now. Any advise?

      Thanks for the reply by the way!!

        Ok, i've granted permission on this. Does it require a restart afterwards?

          So you just enabled RRAS for icmp traffic??
          Errr ok?

          Anyhow your Windows firewall is disabled. What else is running on the DC besides RRAS (for the moment I hope?)

            The only time I've seen this was on ISA server.
            Do you have ISA or Forfront running on this DC??

              Or an anti virus that has a firewall?
