SBS SP1 server gets ping response, client does not - 2.Aug.2005 8:52:00 AM
Just upgraded to SBS 2003 SP1. First of all found that I could no longer connect my PPTP VPNs from my client PC to other sites. Rooted around in the policy and added 'Internal' to the from/listener to the "SBS PPTP outbound Access Rule" and it now works.
Now I find that I can ping (say) www.google.com from the server console but not from my PC even with FWC enabled (or disabled!)
Had a bit of a google around but can't find anything except 'enable IP routing' which is already enabled.
Set up logging to the destination IP and the result is 'denied connection' refering to the rule "SBS Internet Access Rule".
by default the "SBS Internet Access Rule" gives "All outbound access" to all users in the group Internet Access on an SBS2003 machine. The first thing I do when setting up an SBS03 box is to reconfigure this rule to only allow HTTP / HTTPS / FTP access.
